I am so thankful, and grateful. He was injured in an accident in Iraq back in 2008. Not seriously injured, but he got a pretty severe back injury, that has hindered him since. He applied over a year ago, and finally got approved! We got a nice back pay check, and will be receiving that supplemental income now. It's only partial disability, but he is also now considered a disabled vet.

My dh was injured on his way to Iraq in 08. Lol his base was hit by a tornado and the whole building crumbled onto them while sleeping. He received disability for that and ptsd. It took a while. The back pay check was nice though.

My dh's compensation started within 3 months of retiring. No big back pay paychecks here because it kicked in pretty fast but it sure is nice to have that check deposited every 1st.

I know the wait is very frustrating and there are people who have been waiting for years. Congrats!

I have a permanent disability both mental and physical. Plus have bone spurs on 90% of my lower spine. Plus PTSD, panic attack disorder, anxiety and chronic headaches. Oh and two major brain injuries Which required double surgery and close death. But I don't qualify. My Dr 3 of them declared me to disabled to work. I don't qualify. Must be nice to brag minor back injuries get it

 Appeal the decision.  If your doctor feels that you are disabled, appeal.  My husband was denied twice for his back, until he had to have neck surgery.  He was approved for SSD because of it.  However, his back is full of arthritis and his legs get numb.  "Minor" back injuries DO NOT exist.

5 lawyers and one court appeal judge said I can work but Dr has 30 pages proving to disabled to work
