NOSSCR Honors Social Security System On 78th Anniversary

The National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives (NOSSCR) issued a press release last week honoring the anniversary of the Social Security system.

The Social Security system was signed into law by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1935, and encompasses Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

“SSDI benefits are very modest, and there are very strict requirements for eligibility – in fact, only 40 percent of those who apply are ever approved – but the importance of the program to the 8 million Americans who depend on it cannot be overstated,” Debra Shifrin, President of NOSSCR said in the release.

“As an advocate for people with disabilities I see people’s lives impacted by this program every single day: families who may lose a house because of mounting bills, a brother who feels like a burden when he asks family members to drive him to the doctor because he can’t pay for gas, a life-long contractor who now has to pay others to work on his house because he can’t physically do the work.” Shifrin said. “These are the real stories of the Social Security program.”

Our Tulsa Social Security disability attorneys are members of the NOSSCR. Steven A. Troutman has attended every NOSSCR conference and served as an instructor at several seminars since he began practicing law, while Gayle L. Troutman currently represents the Tenth Circuit on the Board of Directors for the NOSSCR.

Troutman & Troutman, P.C. – Tulsa Social Security disability attorneys


    I didn't think there was a caring professional considerate attorney firm on the planet, but Troutman & Troutman proved me wrong. From the receptionist to the legal assistance to the attorney and more they were exceptional people.

    - Robert S.

    They did a fantastic job getting everything gathered up and getting the trial done as quickly as possible. Anytime I had a question they were patient and help me understand what was going on. Especially Christy and Charlie were great.

    - Michael M.

    Steve Troutman was able to get my short-term and long-term disability for me. Then Erin another lawyer for their firm got my Social security disability for me. Great people.

    - Billy S.

    Mr. Troutman walked me through the entire process. Heather was available each time I called, answered all my crazy questions, and helped me fill out forms along the way. I was never treated like I was wasting time.

    - Julia C.

    Erin and Keith were fabulous! They were compassionate, helpful, and very responsive! They made the process very smooth and painless every step of the way.
