Proving a Mental Disability
For your mental illness claim to be approved, the Social Security Administration (SSA) will require documented proof of your disability from a psychiatrist or psychologist. We must show that you have a qualifying mental illness and demonstrate that it is keeping you for performing your job duties. Our attorneys can give you advice on documenting your medical claim, and they can advise you on how to work with your doctor to maximize your chances of success.
