  • I just appealed Social Security's decision to deny my survivor's benefits,which were denied, again! I'm a disabled widow,and have had my disability since I was a teenager,since my records show I have a personality disorder,Agoraphobia,etc. But,they keep denying my husband's benefits on the grounds that I didn't become disabled within 7 years after he died!
