Hellion, you sound like you know the in's and out's of SSDI better than the Average Joe. I called a few lawyers and they all said to apply first and then call them when I got the denial. So I have. I've applied.

The local SSA office sent me a letter asking me to call because they needed clarification on a couple of my answers. Because I explained I have difficulties getting out of the house in my free-form section of the application, I'm sure that's part of the reason why they also took my SSI application over the phone.

Additionally, the agent I talked to kept saying "when you're approved." I listened closely after the first time she said it, and it was definately "when" and not "if." And she said it 3-4 times. Soooooo, does that sound good?
