I first applied for disability in January 2006. Within about 2-3 months I was noified that I was declined. I chose not to appeal at the time.
This past September (2008) I reapplied for benefits and still have not received a decision. I did some research on the social securuty web site and read over the letters I have received. The web site told me a decision would be made within 120 days which according to my calculations has passed. I've tried checking my application status online and it just tells me it's still in process.
I saw my doctor last week, and I told him I had not received a decision yet. He said something about it taking 2 years! :eek:
Does anyone have any idea on how long this actually takes?
