A little over a week ago I called the Disability Examiner assigned to my case and she told me a decision had been made but she couldn't tell me the decision. I have call the local social security office here several times asking them to look at my file and see if a decision has been made. Each time they have indicated that file doesn't indicate a decision. I have been the squeeky wheel with my case and am wondering should I call my Disability Examiner with this conficting information or just wait more? How long would it take for a decision to be known to the feild office normally? I live overseas and with mail the way it is am afraid if I am not getting prompt and accurate information I could miss out if I was denied and need to appeal. I already found that my previous assigned person at the field office had resigned because alone with me he had not been submitting information or claims promptly. If I am denied all I can do is review my file and make an appeal but I want as much time to work on it as possible. Oh, also we don't have the ability to do most online surfaces outside the U.S. The field office has electronic access to SSA records.
