For those of you whom I have been blessed to have with me during this 7 yr rollercoaster ride, you are familiar with my story.
First and FOREMOST I wish to say I am eternally grateful for all your help and eternally grateful for the Judges decision. I just have a few questions to ask and not doing well with having more questions than I had before i called my attorney or SSI
I was shot in the line of duty in a county courtroom back in 1993. I was out for a year recovering and recuperating from dozens of surgeries and mental breakdowns. On November 27,1997 I was no longer mentally or physically fit for duty and retired disabled.
I WAITED until 2010 to file for SSDI ...(hoped to one day return to my job)
AFTER 2 federal appeals and 6 yrs I was given a fully favorable bench decision and a signed letter in mail on the 4th of January, 2017 stating onset date of NOVEMBER 27, 1997
a total of 19 yrs. I was told many times back pay can only go back to one year prior to the filing date -5 months....My question is how in gods name do they break this down? Whats the standard operating procedure? How do they factor in the cost of living increases over the years ? What do they base the monthly amount on? What I was making back in 1997?....Its been less than a month from the day the judge signed the letter and almost 2 months from the live hearing date, so obviously I haven't heard anything from SSI except the decision letter. I APOLOGISE for so many questions, I'm just making my self sick because I'm hoping to save whats left of my shattered life with the only good news in many ,MANY years.........Any help would be greatly appreciated......
