I am 30 years old and suffer from a rare genetic disease that has left me disabled. As my disability is not listed as a SS impairment, I was forced to wait for the hearing. Many felt it was going to be difficult, but Ed knew the right questions to ask at the hearing, and the right medical records to present. The overall process took close to 2 years, which is a very long time to go without any income, but at least now I have the security of the monthly benefits. If you have a disability keeping you from work, speak to him!
