Social Security said that I would be able to return to work sometime in the next year. Should I wait to see if I get better or should I appeal?

It is important to appeal because most claims are denied at the initial level, but are approved at higher levels of review. Waiting to see if you get better would mean that you start over at the end of the line if in fact you were not able to return to work within a year from when you became unable to work.
