I think you are going to have to go to your local SSA office and explain this to them using the language you would use with your grandchildren. When I was on SSA and also got workers compensation I went down and told them about it and they compeltely misunderstood me. I used big words so I guess that was too much for the person who was my worker. I was telling them I was on federal workers compensation (the same system the SSA workers are covered by). They did not know what I was talking about. These people are dumb and dumber. Ask them about the compensated work therapy.

I would call the 800 number. It looks like a boiler plate letter that they send to everyone to me.

Well it aint no boiler plate letter............................its because of my heart. SSA Policy says any head injury, heart issue or stroke will put a hold on a case for a 90 day period. I was told that I had a choice submit my case as is and accept the result which could be unfavorable................or I could wait untill the 90 days. :) :( :huh::huh:

so it seems the SSA is not to far away from operating procedures as the VA

There are 4 classes of heart disease the SSA uses. Class 1 is no limitation

Class 2 is slight limitation, Class 3 is marked limitation and Class 4 is total limitation.

Have your cardiologist write something that identifies yourt classification of heart disease and submit it to them and tell them to get their backsides ont he ball. If you have an attorney get them involved. If not, I advise getting one.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
