Can You Receive SSD Benefits for Mental Health Issues?
Mental impairments are often not as easily discernible as the common physical conditions that can qualify you to receive Social Security disability benefits. However, if a mental condition renders you unable to work, you may qualify for benefits.
Kocian Law Group has successfully represented many people pursuing disability benefits based upon their mental health. We not only provide practical advice when handling claims for disability benefits via an honest assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of your case, but we also are concerned about your specific needs. Therefore, we pay thorough attention to the details that make the difference.
When you are in poor health physically, your mental health may be affected as well. This is actually more common than most people realize. Exploring both the mental and physical aspects of disability in a Social Security case, however, paints a full picture of the hardships you face and often improves your claim for benefits.
Cases involving Social Security disability claims consist of several steps. If an initial claim is denied, you have the right to ask for a reconsideration. If benefits are denied after reconsideration, your case may go to a hearing before an administrative law judge. You are allowed to work with an attorney of your choice at every step. Because the process can be taxing on mental health in particular, it’s wise to work with an attorney whom you trust to advocate fully and fairly on your behalf.
Kocian Law Group regularly advocates for those with mental or emotional disabilities. Mental health problems can affect every part of your life, including your ability to think clearly when it comes to making your Social Security disability claim. Let us help you navigate through the process with compassionate, competent, and conscientious representation.
