When I signed my husband up for SSDI about 15 years ago, we went together for an intake interview at an SS office in a nearby town.
The clerk was going over his paperwork, and everything was going along quietly, when he questioned my husband’s sz diagnosis.
My poor husband started talking about how he was under attack by the secret government, being zapped by strangers on the street, poisened,etc. You should have seen the look of shock on the clerk’s face! He excused himself and left the room.
When he came back, he said my husband’s claim was approved. I think they even gave him a check right then for uncompensated back benefits, too. A big check, like $8,000.
