Seek Financial Relief If You Suffer From A Psychological Disorder

People with psychological disorders face an uphill battle. Unlike physical impairments, such disorders are invisible to the naked eye. This can make it difficult for others to comprehend just how the disorder disrupts your everyday life.

At McKown, Whitehurst & Myers, LLP, we understand the struggles you go through on a day-to-day basis if you suffer from a psychological impairment. Unfortunately, these struggles can be amplified when you attempt to seek benefits from the Social Security Administration (SSA). In general, most initial claims will be denied.

However, we are prepared to fight for our clients through all stages of the claims and appeals processes no matter their type or level of impairment.

Psychological Disorders Recognized By The SSA

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

  • Schizophrenic, paranoid and other psychotic disorders
  • Mental disabilities
  • Anxiety-related disorders
  • Personality disorders
  • Substance addiction disorders
  • Autism and other developmental disorders

Providing documentation for a psychological disorder may not be easy. 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 Indiana disability attorneys are extremely familiar with the listings and the required documentation for psychological disorders. Our law firm will work closely with your doctor and/or psychologist to factually document the disorder in accordance with the SSA requirements.
