Many people think that only physical impairments are disabling. That is simply not true. The Social Security Administration (SSA) provides a lengthy list of mental and emotional impairments that may be considered disabling for SSDI or SSI disability claims.
There are many myths about Social Security Disability claims and mental health impairments. I have helped many clients get benefits for themselves and their families when these mental conditions prevent them from holding down a job
I routinely represent clients with severe mental illnesses such as:
- Bi-polar disorders
- Personality disorders
- Psychotic disorders (Schizophrenia or Schizoaffective disorder)
- Substance abuse disorders, so long as substance abuse is not material to the disability
