Short term.- Apr 18th. Was paid full salary by my employer Equity Residential
Long term.- From Oct 1st 2011 to Nov 15ht 2012 Was paid by insurance
Lincoln Financial Group. $1,458 monthly, about 50% of my regular salary.
Applied to SSA.- May 18th 2011. They denied the application, but after a appeal by Advocator group, they finally set hearing date for the next April 15th 2013 at 11AM at Fort Lauderdale court.
I couldn’t stand any more with my financial struggles and On Set 10th 2012, with
this eye conditions, I re-start working until now.
According with Advocator Group, the application for disability was dismissed because I worked more than 90 day but I should go to the audience next April 15th because the Judge could order the SSA to pay the 13 months that I was without working, BUT, this money really will go to pay the lawyers and all the balance will be for the Lincoln Financial Group.
Advocator Group is taking care of Lincoln Financial Group interests only, Can I go to the court without lawyer or with another lawyer?
Lincoln Financial Group said, I must go to the hearing any way even tough I am not going to receive any money, otherwise, they will send a bill for 1,458 X 13 months. Is that possible? I have to go?
I can re-apply to SSA my case if my vision gets worst in the future?
