Default Hello Valerie

I am not really sure. Usually if you are denied, that is stated very clearly. Case closed also doesn't leave room to appeal. Even after a hearing in court, I believe you can appeal. Keep post to the main board. Many more people here are better in this issue than I am. I hope you are OK. ginnie

In writing? Asking because denials are never given over the phone. SSDI denials are always in writing and the word "denial" is in the letter.

Yes you are right. The letter concerning the case is very clear. If it is denied, they do it in writing not over the phone. ginnie

"Case closed" sounds odd to me. Perhaps they meant to say "a decision HAS been made, you'll have to wait until you get your letter to see what it says though."

If it was a denial, there is still the appeals process. If it was an approval, you are still subject to re-evaluations in the coming years.

It seems to me that a case shouldn't be 'closed' until you are deceased.

Maybe one of the posters who work in the field will have a more helpful answer for you.

Best of luck with this Val !

Case closed simply means all evidence has been submitted. My case was left open at my first hearing b/c the judge allowed time for me to submit missing records. Ur case is ready for a decision b/c all evidence is with the judge. It has nothing to do with an approval or denial.

Thanks Tired ! I hope that assuages Val's fear about that being 'denial' related.

You will get a CASE CLOSED if you have exhausted all of your appeals and have run out work credits.

I did... That's the only reason I know this.......but I did get this in writing.

Sigh,
Abbie

Default Hi Abbie, question

What does it mean to run out of work credits? I thought during the process you had to work a certain number of work credit hours in order to qualify for anything. For me this time thing was cut right down to the last six months of my work record, and I had to prove "two" of the final ones. I was a home artist, and sold work. Had to get the last bit of proof as claiming "time" for work at home is difficult. Went by how much I made at the end. I also thought all decisions were given in mail form, not by phone at all. I have alot to learn about getting benefits and the in's and outs, I am curious. ginnie
