Making Sense of the Social Security Disability System
For people suffering from mental disorders, it can be very difficult to maintain employment. Although many think a mental disability will not qualify them for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, that is not always the case.
If you suffer from depression, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or another mental condition, the attorneys at Gatti, Keltner, Bienvenu & Montesi, PLC, can help you seek the SSD benefits you need and deserve. Whether you have not yet filed your initial application or are facing an appeal, we are prepared to help you achieve a favorable result.
Have you already been denied Social Security Disability benefits? Don't give up. Denied mental illness claims are not uncommon. It doesn't mean that you're not disabled or that you can't get the benefits you need. We can help. To schedule a free consultation with a Memphis mental illness disability attorney, dial 901-526-2126 or contact our Memphis, Tennessee, law offices online.
Germantown Social Security Benefits Lawyer
Mental illness can have a number of disabling effects that make it impossible to perform job duties. People with mental illnesses can suffer panic attacks, have trouble concentrating and coexisting with other people, and suffer other setbacks which severely limit their ability to work.
We represent people suffering from a wide range of mental conditions, including:
- Clinical depression
- Bipolar disorder
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Dissociative disorders
- Tic disorders
- Anxiety disorders
- Brain damage
- Personality disorders
If you are seeking SSD benefits, it is very important to maintain thorough and accurate documentation from mental health providers. Although it may be obvious to you and people who know you that you are disabled, the Social Security Administration (SSA) requires documented evidence of your disability before it will grant benefits.
Our lawyers will work with you closely to gain a true understanding of your mental disability and how it is affecting your ability to work. We will do everything we can to help you obtain SSD benefits, and guide you through all stages of the process.
