I recently had a psychological evaluation at the request of the SSA agent handling my disability claim. The psychologist said that she knew what kind of tests I needed to reveal the mental problems that I stated I'm having; however, she could only do what the SSA had asked her to do and that was not going to show what I needed. She said that if I was denied, not to give up. I should get an attorney and have the necessary tests administered. Then I asked about selecting an attorney since I am new in the area -- near Altoona, PA. She said that the SSA prefers to work with certain attorneys and that they (the SSA) could give me names of attorneys if I called them. That sounds like a conflict of interest to me. Any opinions? The information I had at the onset of this crazy FM stuff indicated that I should not get an attorney until "if and when" I was denied SSA disability benefits the first time. Maybe that was bad info?
