Social Security Disability | Mental Disability Claims
Many of the people who come to Myler Disability for help with their Social Security Disability claims are suffering from mental disorders. Their work lives have been cut short by a disabling mental illness. If that is your situation, and if your Social Security Disability claim has been denied, don’t give up.
The Social Security Disability benefits advocates at Myler Disability have extensive experience helping people with mental disorders prove their disabilities to the satisfaction of the Social Security Administration.
If you have earned Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits by working for 20 out 40 quarters (5 out of 10 years), and if you cannot hold a job because of a mental disorder, we will help you. (If you have not worked long enough for SSDI benefits, we can help you apply for Supplemental Security Income (SSI).)
Mental health disability benefits are available for many different disorders, including, but not limited to:
- BiPolar Disorder
- Mental Retardation
- Personality Disorders
- Somatoform Disorders
Substance addiction disorders (drug or alcohol addictions) are not considered to be mental disabilities for purposes of Social Security Disability or SSI. If your substance addiction makes a mental disorder worse, the addiction will not necessarily disqualify you from eligibility. You may still qualify for benefits. If your addiction causes or contributes to a mental disorder, you may not be covered.
If you have a mental health problem that keeps you from being able to work, talk to the mental health disability benefits advocates at Myler Disability. The consultation is free.
