A: It's impossible to give you a clear answer on this question due to limited information. If you do not have a disability attorney handling your case, then you can try calling the hearings office where your case is located and see if they may be able to give you some clarification. Otherwise, your only other option is to just wait to receive the Judge's complete final decision in the mail and then go from there.
