Troutman & Troutman, P.C.

o As doctors and researchers learn more about psychological and emotional issues, health providers and even government entities are beginning to recognize the seriousness and complexities of these conditions. It is important to note, however, that alcohol and other substance use can severely negatively impact a person’s changes of gaining benefits for a mental or emotional condition. I tell my clients it is important to understand how the SSA makes its decisions and why before beginning the application process.


A third problem - you have to give your "primary" phone number. It didn't like the one I've had for 12 years at my house, or my cell phone number.

On the second try, I left the phone number blank and continued to a page that wanted to know when my house was built, as well as what car I drove, and then went to a page that said the service was down.

If they make it difficult enough, no one will bother, and they can do what they want.
