Depression and anxiety disorders differ from physical impairments in that the debilitating effects cannot be seen with the naked eye. This presents unique challenges when proving the existence of the impairment to the Social Security Administration (SSA).
At the Middlesex County Law Offices of Jeffrey W. Goldblatt, Esq., attorney Goldblatt has helped many who struggle with emotional disorders – such as anxiety and depression – get the Social Security benefits they need to pay daily expenses and focus on treatment.
Monmouth County Anxiety Disability Attorney: Providing Proof Of Emotional Disorders
Unlike physical impairments such as back injuries, broken bones and cardiovascular disease, emotional injuries can be difficult to determine. However, this does not mean that people dealing with depression and anxiety disorders suffer less.
Proving your impairment rises to the level of severe disability is the first step in obtaining Social Security benefits. Because emotional disorders are harder to prove, disability lawyer Jeffrey Goldblatt works hand in hand with psychiatrists and psychologists to prove his client’s impairment qualifies him or her for Social Security benefits.
Working with medical experts allows Jeffrey Goldblatt to answer the tough questions such as: Why aren’t psychotropic medications working? Why are even simple job duties impossible for a depressed person to complete?
You can get Social Security for depression and anxiety, and New Jersey attorney Jeffrey Goldblatt can help.
Providing Benefits To People Suffering From Depression and Anxiety
While many people suffering from anxiety and depression are able to obtain employment, their diseases may make it difficult to fulfill their job requirements and retain employment. Medications may stop working and overwhelming depressive states cause many sufferers to miss work, resulting in poor job performance.
People who suffer from anxiety may find the daily rigors of employment too much to handle. Many people suffer anxiety attacks when faced with quotas, deadlines or stressful work environments. Those suffering from bipolar disorders may be affected by the highs and lows of their disease, making it hard to maintain healthy working relationships with employers.
Many other types of mental and emotional disorders – such as obsessive compulsive disorder, post–traumatic stress disorder, phobias and early onset dementia and Alzheimer’s – also may qualify you for Social Security benefits.
