  1. Hi I’m awaiting SSDI decision on initial application.
    I called today the(800) # to request update status on claim. Person who answered phone stated my application is at DDS n kept me on hold for a few minutes. He came back to line n gave me a ” call back date of Nov 20. To call if I had not heard or received anything on the mail” do u know what this means???


  2. Hey there sleepygirl,
    I just got done with rental agreement interview and I waited forever but it was worth it.
    I got a permanent address now and maximum benefits!
    I didn’t have to wait for the amount either, the woman told me right there 🤓
    She even changed my records on my last redetermination letter. All of em. So I wouldn’t be charged with being overpaid.
    She said to check my PO Box in 5 days for the update letter.
    I wanted to tell YOU the most! 💎😁
    Thank you for everything, you helped me out so much that I’m finally going to be living in a house, paying rent and an actual address!!!
    I wish only the best of the best in life to you!!
    Wonderful soul, sleepygirl.


    1. I am super happy for you. Great job!! And you were so smart to fix the last determination like that. Sounds like you did everything perfectly!!

      It is so great that you have a place to live now (and I guess your landlord must be nice if they drove you to the appointment) 🙂

      I hope you new home will be a wonderful place for you.


      1. 😊
        Thanks so much!
        Couldn’t have done it without your insight!
        I was brief, asked as little as possible and ready to ask for proof if anything was updated wrong.
        One thing that scared me was no paperwork to fill out or copies of my adjustment, I think I’m just used to having stacks up “proof” and can’t take their word for it.
        I think I’m just over excited of anything going on .
        (Yes indeed my landlord/friend is a great guy….a friend for life now even after I move)
        Thank you again, being happy is all around indeed.
        It’s such a great feeling that it makes me wonder if it’s all real lol.


  3. Very cool. Just recommended our support group include this in our newsletter (which goes out nationally). I wish there’d been a resource like this when I first got sick!
