So I got SSI instead and am still fighting that war to get my full disability ( which is three times as much as SSI based upon my past income ).
WOW, I had and still have a almost 22 year battle to hang onto my disability payments, I never stood before a real judge but I did have to travel out
of town and offer myself as a "Human Pin Cushion" for any tests the insurance company deemed necessary. When that failed they then demanded a list of
things I could do from my Specialist and he refused to provide any type of list.
My workplace insurance company would not let it go though, they kept up the out of town appointments at a constant barrage that was sapping our
finances. We had just bought our first home weeks before I got sick, and 9 months later I still had not seen any money at all so this was very
expensive and possibly the end of our dreams.
My CPP disability payments were approved in less than one month. But the payments are very small and don't even cover the utilities.
Anyways after my wife having to take time off of work to drive me out of town (120 mile round trip) and the stress it was causing me caused my
Specialist to flip right out at the insurance adjudicator in his office:-)
Simply put he said, Lady next time we meet will be in court and you are paying all costs and I want you to write a check out right now for these folks
(Me and my other) for their time and gas.
Never got that check and should have been about 3K but I still get my payments.
Funny thing is I still have to jump through the medical hoops whenever the insurance company says so but it is all here in town after that fateful
Call me evil but that last meeting out of town made the lady adjudicator cry and I laughed in the hallway after we left and she caught that:-)
Didn't bother me one bit nor the wife either once outside the hospital we High fived each other.
Your not alone Heff.
