Practice Areas James A. McKown Jr.

People with psychological disorder disabilities face an uphill battle. Not only is the disorder physically hidden, those not struggling with the disability have difficulty understanding the impact it has on a person's day-to-day life.

At the Law Office of Jim McKown, our experience handling Indianapolis disability claims has made us an invaluable resource for people with psychological impairments. We understand the challenges our clients face in dealing with the Social Security Administration (SSA) and seeking benefits. We are prepared to fight for our clients through all stages of the claims and appeals processes. Contact our Indianapolis disability benefit attorney today for a free consultation.

Listing of Psychological Impairments

The SSA recognizes nine categories of mental and psychological disorders under its listing of impairments:

  • Organic mental disorders
  • Schizophrenic, paranoid and other psychotic disorders
  • Affective disorders
  • Mental retardation
  • Anxiety-related disorders
  • Somatoform disorders
  • Personality disorders
  • Substance addiction disorders
  • Autistic and other developmental disorders

Receiving SSD or SSI benefits requires that an individual document the medical impairment and the degree to which it impairs the individual's ability to work. Doing so can be difficult. How do you prove that depression prevents you from even getting out of bed in the morning, let alone functioning in a work environment? How can you show that your anxiety is so severe that just thinking about driving to the office can cause a panic attack?

Our Marion psychological disorder disability attorney is extremely familiar with the listings and the required documentation. Our law firm will work closely with your doctor and/or psychologist to factually document the disorder in accordance with the SSA requirements.
