Because you are disabled.

File for disability benefits.

Appeal your case.

How you presented your initial application was the best you could do at that time given what you knew and were told.

But, if you were not successful, appeal (1) because you are disabled and (2) because you can improve on your presentation.

ALJ Constitutionality

The Supreme Court decision in Lucia v. SEC, June 21, 2018, can have a big impact on Social Security--if Social Security Administrative Law Judges are found unconstitutional (that is, all present ALJs are not properly appointed, all are out of office), I predict chaos at the hearing office.

If ALJs cannot be appointed administratively as at present, then they must be appointed as regular federal judges or possibly as federal executive officials by the president.
