SS Disability appt
#1
Well I had My dr appt today with SS and was deemed disabled but after the appt the doc told me I would still probably be denied due to my age she set my restrictions as follows

no sitting or standing more then 1 hr
no bending ,twisting, climbing, stooping
no lifting more then 10 pounds
no driving
left foot positive for drop foot, Meralgia Paresthetica, l4-l5 radiopathy, l5-s1 radiopathy, failed back fusion

So now I wait to see what really happens I still have my mental examine
any thoughts would be greatly appreciated

Thank you

Your restictions are similure to mine. I am not aware of your age, however; I was approved when I was 39. I hear alot of talk about SSDI approvale and age. I am sure age makes a difference, but my beliefe is that is does not make as much a difference as people make it out to be.
8-05, Micro laminectomy/disectomy. 10-05 lumbar fusion L5-S1. 2-07 exploritory surgery. 12-07 medical implant, Spinal Cord Stimulator. now receiving SSDI. After going back to school, I received my degree as a mechanical engineer. What can I say, it was the only way I had to beat the system.

If you are denied, be sure to appeal right away.

I was approved the first time. I was given some advice from the supervisor at the SS office. He told me to call my state rep and have them push my application through. They have a person in each state reps office that handles social security. I did just as he said, and so did one of my friends, and both were approved the first time. My friend was approved in 3 weeks with the state reps help.

good luck!!

lookup arizona state reps ! Should get you to the website for imformatino or at least a link.
Oh and it does matter what age your are, because I had a friend that filed at 55 and he got his because they decided it would take to long to train him for another job.Tongue
