I got my first denied from Social Security August 2004. I put in for Reconsideraton on 13 Sept 2004, I had 60 day deadline to appeal. I was admitted to the Hospital on 6 August 2004 and discharged from the Hospital 25 August 2004. I had a Hip Operation on my left side. I went into the Rehab on 26 August 2004 and was there until 23 Sept 2004. I have several doctor told me I can't work no more because my time in service. I have psysical limitation to, I can't sit, walk, stand, etc. I have ask my Congressman to help me with my SSDI claim. I am still have job, but I have not work over four months now because I am still on sickcall.
My question, since I am at the Reconsideration level, is it a good idea to obtain a lawyer before I recieve my second Denial. thank you Kirby
