I recommend clients check their credit report using annualcreditreport.com more frequently during this time of financial uncertainty. Equifax, Experian and TransUnion are offering free weekly online reports through April 2021.

Hi Jen. To answer your question—People with PTSD can be found eligible for Social Security disability or SSI benefits, but there are many factors to consider for eligibility for both types of benefits (including work history, disability, and income/resources). There might be a number of reasons your client was told she was ineligible. Here’s a link to eligibiltiy criteria for SSDI https://www.ssa.gov/planners/disability/qualify.html#anchor3; and here’s a link to info about SSI eligibility https://www.ssa.gov/ssi/text-eligibility-ussi.htm. This client can apply online here: https://secure.ssa.gov/iClaim/dib. Or she can apply over telephone or by sending a paper application to her local SSA office by certified mail. To find her local Social Security office click this link: https://secure.ssa.gov/ICON/main.jsp.

Notarizing can be done via video. Clients should call their bank and ask as most banks notarize. On signing documents, the bank representative should lead them through it and the representative would likely watch them sign via video. If not connected to notarizing, then they need to sign and scan or sign up for an app like DocuSign (which may cost something).
