Well I just checked my mail and my on-line account.  No change still shows "processing".  I hoped it would have at least changed to decision made or in writing or something.  I know it's not even a month yet, but this waiting is driving me crazy.  I must check on-line 4 times a day looking for any kind of update.  I am also having a major flair in my RA from the added stress.  This is the worst wait of all. 

Does anyone know if the online statue actually changes when the decision is made?

3 1/2 weeks??  May I suggest you not look at My SSA for 3/15 months.  Be that time you may have something in writing, your representative, or in My SSA?  It happens but relatively few decisions are completed in under 100 days.

Yes, the wait is horrible but obsessing as you are only hurts you.

Additional Info: My Different Perspective comes from a lifetime of being near, working with and for those with disabilities, working for the Easter Seal Society, working for the Disability Determination Services (20+ years) and working as a case assistant to an attorney who, until he retired, worked on SSA disability cases exclusively and have attended approximately 185 Hearings. I have great empathy for the truly disabled and greater antipathy for those who try to game or scam the system. With my background, I quickly make distinctions between the two. I am ready to admit my error as soon as the evidence proves me wrong. Any posts I make are based on my experience, memory and current research. Anything, particularly opinions, I post should be verified by someone who has access to the entire case record and not just selected shorts offered by those seeking information, preferably by a competent attorney or non-attorney representative who thoroughly understands SSA law.

Thanks DP.  I know I am obsessing, I tend to obsess about things.  The bills are piled up and waiting months more for a decision and then if approved backpay etc.  I think I need to download a new book to take my mind off it.

Wow, 8 months, that's terrible.  Do you have any idea why it took so long?

Oh no...worrying yourself sick. I know that feeling and telling you not to is easier said than done. I hope your mind finds calm in this sometimes very frustrating process.  Take care!
