How long did it take(for you) to get approved/denied?

I put in the proper info online to get the ball rolling a few weeks ago but I couldnt get an appointment until the end of this month to put in the actual physical paperwork.

I also applied for supplemental insurance, but they are asking me to apply for my youngest as well, so stall there.

I cant continue my sons therapies and its somewhat upsetting. He was really getting somewhere with OT..he even went back himself last time!

We applied at the beginning of December (not this past december) and got approved the end of Feb, for it to start paying in March. They also paid us two back months for that January and Feb. So when it started we got three months total.

ive been denied 4 times
the last time my parents applied for me since i was 17,it took a few months for me to be denied. i had just turned 18 and hired a lawyer to appeal it
it then took over a year to go through the appeal,court and for them to reach the decision and to start receiving payments

Thanks for the replies ladies :)

I know that sometimes they will deny you outright within a month or stepdad is a veteran and he has been denied a good 5 times.

I just want to be sure to help him while he is young so he is able to live as normal as possible as an adult. I dont want to be left in the balance forever..but once we get settled up we can resume therapy asap. Its good to know whats in front of me so I can prepare myself.
