My husband filed for SSDI the same time he filed for his VA disability. He was denied SSDI. He is 100% schedular for CLL. He is now undergoing chemo for the 3rd time and looking at stem cell as a possible treatment down the road. That is a long shot though. My husband filed approximately a month ago for SSDI. He got a letter today that states he meets the medical requirements. They are reviewing the 'non-medical requirements" and they will be making their decision very soon according to the letter. He should be watching for their 2nd notice. The question is, what are non-medical requirements?
