I retired from being a correction officer in 2004 and when I went in front of this judge he was only thinking about my age and a $3000 some dollars check that I had gotten. He had a doctor on the phone that never seen me a day in my life tell him that their was nothing wrong with me but all my doctors said I wasn’t fit to work anymore and then he sent me to a disability doctor himself and that doctor told him to approve me and the man that was sitting in the meeting we had told the judge Levi son that there was no jobs out there for me to do and he still denied me my benefits. I had worked 18 years and got denied my benefits. To this day I’m still having the same symptoms and more problems like I need a major back and neck surgery but can’t have it cause they wants $5000 up front and the doctor told me I will never be able to work again if I wanted to so judge levinson I think you should go back and approve my case and other people you did wrong because that would be the right thing to do if you have a heart. And I know you can do it because you’re the judge and we worked to long to not to receive our benefits.
Did you know that even though you are denied you can still appeal to the board for another decision.
I will say that I was not impressed with how I was treated at my ALJ hearing for my SSDI. Being a medically retired veteran and 100% disabled rated by the VA. After going through a heart attack, several spinal procedures and injections for pain from injury sustained in Iraq while deployed for a year and over 20+yrs in the service. I felt he was more concerned that I was receiving my military retirement pay instead of focusing on what I was at the hearing for “My SSDI” that I have paid into and earned over the past 30yrs! As I had to keep saying, I was forced to retire from my full-time job and it’s hard to deal with the pain. Over 700 pages of medical documentation from doctors/specialist and still denied! The hearing was a complete waste of time and I think this judge did not like the fact that I draw my earned retirement and applied for my SSDI!!!
This judge is great — he has a sense of humor, abundant common sense, compassion, and a unique ability to relate to a diverse variety of people.
This judge is a lot of fun! He makes the hearings enjoyable for the claimants and their attorneys, and is very interested in what the claimants have to say. Don’t try to fool him, though — he’s sharp as a tack!
