I am a disabled veteran 100% unemployable status rated by the US Army & Veterans Affairs... took me close to 3 years to get approved for SSDI in November 2014, the VA social worker I had, was looking over my papers & told me to question their decision for onset dates, the US Army & Veterans Affairs had me down for February 2009, I was MED BOARDED while on active duty, so my completion/release date from active duty was September 2010. My social worker noticed their on set dates given were set for February 2014, she had advised me to question my local office as to why. That same day I did go question my SSDI case worker, she also thought it was odd, right month, wrong year... she stated could be a simple mistake, & she assisted me with an 'appeal for on set dates' it was processed in January 2015. I was already approved & collecting benefits at this time. I ended up moving to Florida to Oregon, in early April 2015. I did addr as changes & all. I was told by case manger Lisa on Oregon it should be any day, as they only take I believe she said 90 days. Still. Never heard anything prior to move. Then in June 2015 I received a denial letter for my appeal, I panicked & called local office in Port Saint Lucie, Florida. The lady on phone at local office pulled up a copy of denial letter sent to me. She told me to calm down, it's only a denial for your "appeal for onset dates", that if I go to 2nd page it states any benefits previously established would continue/remain the same, she said it was just for my onset dates appeal, that it can take a few times when I have time come down & she will help me re-file the appeal again. She confirmed my payments were all set with no interruptions. In October 2015 my payment never hit bank, I again called questioning, figuring maybe a holiday or something? I was told I'd have to come in to find out why, so I did, that same day. They had 2 people come & explain why. They stated it's due to earned income, I asked what's that mean? They said you are working... I explained no way I'm 100% unemployable, I can't work... they said yes you are for a company called DFAS... I then explained what DFAS is, it's the main payroll office for any & all military pay... active duty, reserves, retiree, & VA disability benefits, for all branches of the military... the guy then admitted was an error, he told me we can't just flip a switch to reinstate, so I'd have to file for a "hearing request" so he helped me fill it out, with full explaination of what was going on, an error, I don't worked & what DFAS is, he said it would be expedited since I'm a disabled veteran, & I should hopefully be reinstated within a month or 2, he doesn't see why they'd waste time for a hearing for something so simple to fix, being an error & wrongful, he asked me why I hadn't come in sooner when I got letter explaining I was going to be being cut, I told him I didn't get a letter, he looked up in computer & said it was sent out, "oh wait" it's scheduled to go out Friday, the Friday after I was cut/missing payment, I then asked so now how do I come in prior to clear up, if your letter is post dated to go out Friday, 2 days after you guys cut my benefits on a Wednesday... for another "oh crap look from both guys... I never heard anything, till January 2016, received a letter stating I had a video hearing date in February 2016. So I attended this hearing alone, no attorney, under impression I was going to clear a simple error showing I am not working & what DFAS is. At this hearing Judge Wendy Hunn never ever once asked about DFAS or earned income, instead it's like they were avoiding the reason they had cut me off, & now trying to run it as a reconsideration case, they had teleconference in a mental health doctor who when Judge asked his opinion stated, his disability dates are February 2009 by the army & Va, you only sent me records from 2009 & back... so based off these I couldn't tell you, she asked him again I didn't ask that all I asked is based off what you reviewed what's your thoughts, he then again stated based off these medical records 2009 & back, they report his mental health at moderate at the time so I guess no... she then said thank you & hung up... she then questioned me on ADL's & issues I have... I explained all, she kept mentioning my "wife" I eventually cut her off & corrected her, "my husband you mean?" My husband is listed on my claim as a dependent... so how they got "wife" to start boggles me, obviously people don't actually review files prior to attending hearings... anyways, after I corrected her, got a dumbfounded look & nothing but sarcasm & attitude there after... I guess she's not much of a LGBTQ 🏳️‍🌈 advocate... whatever.... she then had her occupational/vocational specialist that works for social security run scinarios of what type of work I could do, based off my disabilities & limitations, her own specialist stated, there are no jobs your honor that will hire this man on full time with benefits & keep him on with his disabilities & limitations... she was about to then end the hearing... she noticed I had a stack of papers with me, she asked what it was, I explained it's the copies of my MED board from army & VA, and a copy of my medical records I was given when I was released on September 2010, along with a few pages here & there as hospitals & clinics have me over the years till now as well, she stated, well I don't have even 1/4th that, I said well I guess you don't have much then... I said I can make copies of what I have, I don't have "everything" from 2010-present just a few pages here & there... as I saidF what they give me copies of. She then replied with, if get your copies, come across just 1 duplicate (period) I am immediately going to push everything off my desk into trash no questions. I said I don't know what you do or don't have... she asked if all my care was done at VA hospitals... I told her well yes most of it, other then a few referrals where va sent me to specialty clinics... she told me to leave a list with the lady ok my end of screen who was in charge of setting up & connecting the video hearing for me & collecting signatures... this lady had me write all down & leave with security guard, stated she had more cases to conduct, Couldn't sit and wait... so I did, I left with security guard along with a detailed timeframe break down of my entire process from 2009 till present... I never heard back till June/July 2016, I received a denial letter, stating because I am single father now, I can go work, & I can work in catering/banquet server/or fastfood... mind you I walk with a cane & walker, and am in a wheelchair for a few weeks here & there thru year because my pains are that bad I can't stand or walk... so not only did their own paid & appointment doctors back in 2014 prior to my original approval state I was disabled, this judge went against what her own vocational specialist told her of work I can perform, decided my case 100% knowing she had not a full set of medical records, forced a mental health doctor to make a decision off partial records dated prior to my onset dates, have himts of discrimination of sexual orientation & marital status... being a single parent does not make any of my disabiliea dealing with easier; only harder, I struggle every single day, due to my disabilities & lack of what I can do... my daughter is behind, she is in therapy for speech, occupational, & developmental skills... because of me... because I can't carry her all day, I have issues picking her up, I can't get down in floor & play wth her, I can't go to parks with her, believe me I tried & ended up in ER next day severely bruised coxxyx, I can't afford day cares, my own anxieties I don't have any friends here... I don't speak to anyone, there for my daughter now has social anxieties as well... she claws her own face, pulls her own hair out, & scratches/pinches her own arms & legs till they bleed if people try to talk to her or get too close Now... so this judge who did not fully review anything, half ***** my case, went against everything & everyone... & I'm almost for sure she discriminated against me once I corrected her of my marital status of being married to another guy/husband... & because I am now a single parent because my husband took off & abandoned my daughter & I when she was 4 months old because he couldn't deal with my disabilities & limitations... that I was in pain all day, everyday, & limited what & when we could do things, he decided to take off with another guys he met & knew for 2 weeks over our 7 years, marriage, & having a child... I'm Biological father through surrogacy, so it's my blood child... regardless of my pains I do what I have to to make sure she is taken care best that I can... I am in tears caring for her at times, trying hardest to hide it, so she doesn't see... it's not easy being disabled, & having a daughter who is now almost 3 years old who is behind, & being treated because of disabilities brought in due to my own disabilities & life issues from injuries while serving this country in the US Army, in deployment to Iraq... shame on this judge... now I'm having to appeal in federal courts which is hell, Florida has limited attorneys for federal cases & I have yet to find one... supposedly only around 28 through entire state... they it only screwed memes stated above, but they also made sure to tile it perfectly to where my LID (Last Insured Date) expired a few weeks after hearing date, but almost 4 months prior to a decision letter... so I couldn't even restart process with a new claim & attorney now, was told to have them manually adjust LID date, something about because I was approved and collecting date should have been frozen anyways, they need to manually adjust it so I can hire an attorney & restart a new claim... went into my local office was told to leave... they can't speak To me because since I'm in process of a federal appeal in court, it's basically a lawsuit against social security, aontjey wouldng speak to me or Assist me in anything now. Great system we have, rule all set up to favor them... & screw citizen over... I bet they never have issues getting approved in life when needed...
