I always heard horror stories from friends who applied for SSDI, all being denied & having to appeal with a hearing, some cases taking years. When I applied in Sept 2019, I prepared for a long wait, waiting for a denial & preparing for a hearing. Then came CV-19 & I was sure I’d be waiting even longer. To my surprise, the case was a complete success in 8 months!! Dustin Jones was my case manager. He answered every question I had, usually quite quickly by email. I know every case is different, but I highly recommend Slepian Smith & his team to take a lot of the stress out of this procedure.
