I’ve been fighting myself for a few years now on filing. I’m at the point where I must now.
Took me about 6 months. However you may qualify for public assistance thru DSHS well you wait. Especially if they no you are waiting to hear back.
Good luck man. That should amount to a lot of back pay. Enough you could easily get a disability attorney and they’d take care of it. Make sure they tell you up front the cost. Otherwise they might take more than what is fair.
I applied in February of 2004 and got them in May of 2004. They went back to January of 2003. I don’t know how I got so lucky. Maybe it was easier eleven years ago than now. I wish you the very best of luck and hope it comes through for you soon!
Thanks for the advice and luck y’all.
