I live and worked in Indiana and i suffered a stroke which caused a left hemianopsia (loss of left field of vision in both eyes)Ifilled out the original application for SSI Disability, and was denied. I got an attorney and he applied for "Reconsideration, and I was denied again. The final hurdle is to go before an Appeals Judge. The "Systen" is so over whelmed that I was informed it will take 23 months to appear before the judge. Are there other avenues I can persue to speed up the process? "My" attorney says there is none. LOL Let's keep him honest or its time for a change. Plz see the thread titled "Can I change my attorney?"
