Protecting People With Mental Impairments In Minnesota

Certain disabling conditions can leave a person unable to return to work. These conditions include mental impairments that are recognized by the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) programs. Despite their recognition of these conditions, it can still be very difficult to get your Social Security benefits claim accepted by the Social Security Administration (SSA).

The best way to overcome the procedural hurdles that stand between you and the benefits you need is to work with a Minnesota attorney with a successful track record in Social Security Disability claims. In Woodbury, Minneapolis, Duluth, Hibbing and other communities, you can turn to the lawyers of Nicolet Law Office, S.C. We understand the requirements for obtaining benefits and can help you get the outcome you deserve as quickly as possible.

Qualifying Mental Impairments

The following are among the most common mental impairments and emotional disorders that qualify for Social Security Disability benefits:

  • Depression
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Anxiety, including anxiety disorders such as schizophrenia
  • Severe cases of ADD and ADHD
  • Serious intellectual disability (previously known as mental retardation)

Don’t despair if you do not see your condition listed here. Any mental or emotional impairment that impacts your ability to hold full-time work or conduct substantial gainful activity can qualify for SSD benefits. One of our attorneys can help you determine if you have a case.

“Invisible” Impairments Add To The Challenge

People with physical disabilities that can clearly be seen often have an easier time gaining approval. Conditions such as anxiety and depression can exhibit themselves in outward behaviors such as self-medicating with alcohol and drugs, but it can be difficult to demonstrate the underlying condition to the SSA’s satisfaction. Our attorneys have years of experience overcoming this challenge to help our clients get the full benefits they deserve. If your claim has already been denied, we can help you pursue an appeal through the reconsideration process.
