Millions of Americans suffer from some type of mental illness. Anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), schizophrenia, eating disorders, schizoaffective disorder, personality disorder, and panic disorders are just some of the conditions that Social Security may find disabling. Mentally ill individuals applying for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) often struggle to obtain their benefits. The mental illness itself makes it more difficult to deal with Social Security. Being diagnosed with a mental illness by a medical professional is not enough to qualify you for disability benefits. Our attorneys are trained on what evidence is necessary to prove disability based upon mental illness.
We understand the struggles that people with mental illnesses face on a daily basis and have represented many SSI and SSDI clients who suffer from mental illness. Don’t fight the system alone.
