While many people first think of physical conditions when considering disabilities that prevent workers from earning a living, there are numerous mental or psychological conditions that qualify for governmental benefits. If you are considering filing for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, it is wise to speak with an experienced lawyer to learn more about your options.
At the law offices of Robyn M. Rebers LLC, I understand that individuals can quickly become frustrated and confused by the process of filing an application or appeal for SSD or SSI benefits. I work to ensure that my clients fully understand the process and what psychological disorders allow them to receive benefits.
