I got injured in Oct of last year and became unable to work since. I did therapy, pain management, (nerve blocks, cortisone shots, etc.), and ended up having back surgery (Discectomy) in March, 2013. I applied for SSI and SSDI in April, 2013. I was denied SSI due to "too much income", and approved for SSDI. However, SSA moved my injury date ahead 8 months to June, 2013. They claim the evidence provided by my doctor in June 2013 shows my condition was disabling at that time. What happened to the doctors' reports from Oct 2012 to June 2013? During those dates, I was either in PT or recuperating from back surgery, but most importantly, unable to work full duty. Adding the SSA 5-month waiting period, I won't see my first disability benefit until Dec '13. Will I be able to appeal this decision?I just noticed that on the "Notice of Decision" form, on the section that states: "The following evidence was used in evaluating your claim", only 2 medical records were listed. There is no mention of a 3rd medical record (dated Oct 2013 to Feb 2013), and where I initially seek medical treatment. Could this be the reason SSA did not considered Oct 1012 as my AOD date? Shouldn't all the medical records received, (hospitals, clinics, etc), be listed here? Thanks for all replies.
