Very unfair and bias, I got denied after what seemed like the trial went very well my attorney said. I got the denial almost a year later and it was very poorly written, did not list the disease that made me disabled, never mentioned how the VE said no jobs, also never mentioned how my PCP and the specialist I see both told me I needed disability, and never mentioned the letter the specialist wrote explaining why I am disabled. Instead said he denied because he felt with my treatments I can still work. Which in the letter the specialist said the opposite.

I had my hearing in February and 9 months later I call and they tell me that Judge has not even looked at my case. I liked the judge he was understanding and took time with me but why so long for an answer and why after 9 months he hasn’t even looked at my case. This is so upsetting I just want an answer.

This judge, as of the 9th of August 2018, will have taken a year to give my husband a decision. We do have a lawyer, and from him we have also heard that my husband is not the only client of our lawyer to have this long of a wait with this judge. We also know of people that have applied for disability after my husband applied and have already gotten it not necessarily with this judge. This is the most rediculois thing we have ever experience! We have been dealing with trying to get his disability for 3 years. Why is this taking so long and why is this exceptable? It should not take this long for a decision after his court date!

He was very easy to understand and was easy to talk too. I waited almost 3 yrs total and I was very nervous about this process. I'm very thankful for your fair decision.

A very special thank you to Judge Schilling whom heard my case in Aug '15. I'm sorry to hear of your illness but am grateful for a decision in a timely manner. I would also like to thank you for your compassion and understanding that I've waited 3 years for this determination. Your competence and command of the proceedings was valued greatly, Godspeed!! I'm hopeful that you get well soon so that others who are deserving may have this same experience under your professionalism. My lawyer was Jason Jouett and his care of my case was appreciated. So grateful and will now be able to contribute to my well-being and needs within my family and community.

Well I just found out, via my attorney, that my case along with several others my lawyer handles have been reassigned. I had my hearing June 2015. Now some of us, not sure how many, who have waited about 10 month for his or her results have to have a new hearing this summer with our new judge. I'm not handling this news well. It's hard to be so invested in an outcome then find out you're starting over at no fault of your own. I am sorry that Mr. Schilling isn't or was not well. I do not harbor ill feelings towards him and truly hope he gets better. I do however, want to say to the SSA that there should have been checks in the process so that no one ever has to wait 10 months just to find out the administration was unable to complete its duty. Red flags should have been popping up much sooner.

My case was denied after waiting 9 months AFTER MY HEARING. Why??? Because he was in and out of the hospital with illness. So I suffer because of that?? I applied for disability because I cannot and have not been able to work. So I guess it's better to go to work and not be able to do a job properly and screw over other people then it is to get disability. Well I'm NOT GIVING UP I WILL APPEAL AS MANY TIMES AS IT TAKES!!!

Please does anyone know how long it takes to get a decision after you have a hearing with judge Shilling whom appeared to be very understanding and sympathetic but I had a hearing in February of this year and still have not heard anything. I am getting really depressed about this waiting more and more waiting seems like that's all I do is wait for help that never comes.
