Oh wow I'm so sorry to hear that you've gone through so much. Have you been seeing doctors for your conditions and do you take meds?
Just a few things to remember, SSDI is for disabled people so what you have to do is not focus on what happened or what illnesses you have but HOW MUCH your symptoms inhibit you from being substantially gainfully employeed. SSI is for aged, blind, and disabled people, who have little or no income.
I would make a list of each health problem; then to the side a list of symptoms then a list of how each and every symptom impacts the ability to do certain things such as your crushed pelvis.
Most likely you were denied because of your age and how much you worked prior to being out of work full time and became disabled. There's a formula they use for X amount of work credits for a certain number of years; have you gotten a social security statement lately? look on the back to see if it shows if you have the right amount of credits and how much you would get if you became disabled at your age.
You may qualify for SSI if you're not working and your household doesn't make a certain amount yearly.
Also, make sure you keep an up to date accurate list of all meds, then on the side any side effects you have from them.
I would find a local attorney who deals in social security cases as soon as possible.
I herd its hard to get ssdi if your under 50 but don't give up I got it I'm 47 it took me 3 yers with the help from my lawyer and God now I'm just waiting for my money I hope things work out for you God Bless
I've heard that also; I think their reasoning is employers dont want to hire older workers and 50 seems to be the cut off for some reason.
grats on your approval; I just got mine in the mail and waiting on the payment center
