Helping Clients With Psychological Conditions Reach Benefits

Based in Columbus, and serving throughout central and southern Ohio, we have more than 60 years of combined experience navigating the complex SSD system, and can relay our knowledge to clients so they can understand their rights and options.
Which Conditions Qualify?
As with claims for physical conditions, the Social Security Administration examines the extent of mental conditions to determine whether benefits are necessary. For a successful claim, you would need to prove that your condition has a clear impact on your ability to work.
Our lawyers have assisted individuals with a wide range of psychological conditions, including:
- Bipolar disorder and related conditions
- Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
- Schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders
- Panic attacks
Psychological conditions can severely limit one’s energy, concentration or intellectual capacity. These symptoms could restrict employment options. As such, individuals suffering from such conditions ought to pursue relief through Social Security.
When Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Becomes Disabling
Many of life’s experiences and situations can lead to the development of PTSD — a particular type of anxiety disorder. You may be the victim of a violent crime, or returning from military deployment. You may have suffered a trauma to the brain or been shocked in a car accident. Regardless of the cause, individuals with PTSD may be able to seek SSD benefits if the condition renders them unable to work.
