You need to get your disability onset date to somewhere between 94-03.

Thanks, will double check into that. Very true, my physical disability did in fact surface during that time frame. Thanks for the wake up call. Lumbar strain and circulation problems with legs, flat feet, plantar fascious, edema, military surgery; mensicus issue on knee.Havent had VA sugery, but do get support socks/sole inserts and physical therapy for back. Possible that I vaguely answered the question at SSDI intake regards when disabliity onset, because I was recalling back to day of onset during service, rather than current larger issues.cg

Remember to get anything you get from SS or VA in writing or it doesn't count. They cannot be held accountable for anything "said." You may need to get to the ALJ level to get your disability starting during the period 94-03. The closer to 94 the better - the higher your rate would probably be. jmo

They should they have done it before Bonnie. You probably should see a Lawyer who does SS Claims.

cowgirl,

I ritered on disability from the fed. in97. the ss sent me a ltr. annualy telling me I didn"t qualify for ss. I knew that I didn't pay any last 21 yrs. was on SSDI 6 before that 6 in svc. before that so no 40 qtrs. hit 62 now ltr says I can retire if I want. cause I qualify don't need 40 qtrs I'm on disability. Suggest u research Social Security Title of Law because they are just like VA they even swap records annually.

Aus, thanks, I get ssdi. It was Bonnie that asked the updated question - a very good question too. I get the understanding that you have been on ssdi for a long time and can retire now, good for you!
