SSD Benefits for People with Bipolar Disorder
The Social Security Administration (SSA) offers disability benefits to people who are prevented from maintaining gainful employment because of the symptoms that are associated with living with bipolar disorder. However, to even be eligible for these benefits, you must generally meet the SSA’s medical standard for bipolar disorder. Proving these two conditions—that you are unable to hold a full-time unskilled job and your condition meets the SSA’s conditions—will require that you provide the SSA with sufficient documentation.
What Our Team Can Do for You
Though these benefits may provide individuals and families with critical assistance, the actual application process can be exceedingly difficult to work through on your own. Bearing that in mind, you may choose to work with an attorney who can help ensure that your application is both complete and correctly filed, particularly in regards to the following:
- Documentation of your medical condition
- Documentation of the limitations your condition has created for you
- All other supplemental documentation that may be required
By working through your application with an attorney, you will be able to ensure that your application will not be turned down for some preventable administrative error.
