Social Security Disability Insurance offers benefits to men and women who cannot work because of mental illness or disability. Among the covered conditions are depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.
The stress of being out of work and unable to work can aggravate an already bad situation. The SSDI process can cause even further aggravation. The paperwork, the deadlines and the process itself can be stressful. If you feel entitled to benefits but unable to cope with the process, we can help.
To be eligible for benefits, you must be out of work; seeing a psychiatrist, therapist or psychologist (who agrees that you cannot work because of your mental disability); and following that specialist’s treatment plan to the letter — including taking medications and attending regular therapy sessions.
