Social Security Disability Question
#1
I met with an attorney that filed an initial claim for SSDI on my behalf. I'm late 50s PTSD, and have injuries from a gruesome accident years ago that have returned to affect my back (one of the fractures was my spine). 

I got a call from my attorney because Social Security is asking for a bank account and the routing number among one or two other pieces of information. Is this a good indicator that they are approvng my claim?

If your lawyer is a Nigerian princess that came highly recommended by the prince of Liberia it is surely a good sign. : )

Make sure first.

Your bank information is needed on the initial SSDI application. SSDI cannot start to process your app until all the info is filled in. It's by direct deposit only so the sooner you give them what they need, the quicker the process will go.

This is not a direct answer to your question, but instead some advice. A friend of mine is going for disability now. SS keeps asking her for more info, often with short turnaround times. Her lawyer said they play games like that to make you miss a deadline or provide wrong info so they can deny your claim. In other words, same game as private insurance plays. Keep sharp!

What did your lawyer say?

Edit: never mind I'm a moron, missed the part that said it was your lawyer who called you.

On another site (mental health) 99% of those who apply for SSDI are refused AT LEAST the first time... many also the second time... some only qualify once they obtain an attorney. Stupid system imo.

Good wishes! It is a mind game with some employees there that have none.
