I'm sorry for the family loss but after reading your family case _there must of had been error of judgment based on the law and ruling of the Judge. During the recession of your family case the history of all clamaint cases are based on material facts and facts of finding that constitute the ALJ file _ motion to suppress patient facts and finding of his /her /child/disability condition and to what degree in meaning the _Listing of Impairments based on several subparts,howver,with employment history that he/she had _I'm more than sure she could of receive benefits within 120 days based on post eligibility until the agency received physician complete summary and factual details why the patient is disable. Another important fact is that sometimes _VE{VOCATIONAL EXPERT} if representation was done then they might of not ask the Vocational Expert the mininum number of questions that would have enlighten the clamaint eligibility for ALJ to approve. Finally,if all medical facts was conclusive then there is no way that the ALJ shouldn't have approved the clamaint therfore ,I WOULD RULE THAT CASE AS _ERROR OF Fundamental Judgement based not on rule but maybe lack of material which is considered evidence was reported during the creation of the record.

What a joke of a judge. I suffered a massive stroke can not use half of my body lost 2 jobs because of stroke have memory problems no one will hire me because they say I am a liability and not hireable because of my stroke. This ****** of a judge says I can do manual labor. I wish you ***** of a judge. I have worked my entire life in the aircraft industry signing off billion dollar planes now I can't even get a job as a sacker at a grocery store because I am a liability. Well you ****** ***** of a judge then you hire me and pay me for the next 6 years along with my insurance as well. I can't even go see my doctor because my wife and I are dead broke and my condition has worsen to the point where dying is my only option. So to you judge I hope your happy with your decision because not only have you destroyed a mans family and pride you are also responsible for his death. I hope u *** ** **** for all of your unjust ways you have cause hurt to people
