    Hi All,

    I received a letter of denial on my sons claim and in the list of information they used to determine this, they did not have the most important evaluation - his Neuropsychological exam. Even though it was faxed to them and I called to verify it was received, the letter doesn't have it listed!?
    Has anyone else ever had this occur, where an important record was lost or not included? Do I really have to go through an appeal or do you think there is a chance they will admit the error on their end?

    Thanks all..................

    Edited to add - He is 7 years old with -

    Inattentive ADHD
    Mood Disorder
    Oppositional Defiant Disorder
    Articulation Disorder
    Social Communication Disorder

    Language Based Reading Disorder
    Also significant motor issues, falls a lot, handwriting issues - recieving speecha nd occupational therapy.

    Times like these, it is best to utilize the services of an attorney (or services) who specializes in SSI.

    I think you'll have to appeal it.

    Get a lawyer, one that will get his payment if you win the case.

    We went through human arc, I think they already get a portion - with a lawyer I'm not sure how much they would take to, but I'll make some calls monday.....t/y!

    I used a lawyer and he got 25% of the back pay. So he got almost $5000 for a half hour's work, but i was approved on the first try so to me it was worth it.

    I've helped someone else complete a disability application and they were approved on the first try. Aside from human arc I was very thorough. I guess monday I will find out how they "misplaced" it. Faxed with confirmation and I called the same day to verify they received it, yet its not listed in the denial letter, but every other irrelevant record is. Ugh :(
