Do You Live With Depression Or Bipolar Disorder?
Many people do not understand the true impact of depression and bipolar disorder, but we do. The truth is, these conditions can be just as debilitating as a physical impairment, or even more so. In the unpredictable swings from lofty highs to crushing lows, you may be unable to maintain employment or even get through your day. This is not something you should be ashamed of. It is a medical condition and is subject to the same safeguards as others.
At Nicolet Law Office, our lawyers have helped many clients in Wisconsin get the Social Security Disability benefits they need to live their lives. We can put our talents to work for you, too.
Even if your Social Security Disability application has been denied, we can still help you.
Do My Symptoms Qualify?
Depression and bipolar disorder are both included in the guidelines for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). However, the challenge that you will face is not only showing that you suffer from one of these conditions but also that the condition is so severe that you are unable to return to work.
We know that talking about your mental health challenges can be difficult, but we will make it as easy as possible. By thoroughly evaluating your history and the status of your application, we may recommend additional assessments to supplement what already exists.
This is especially true if your condition is so severe that you have been unable to seek help. While the Social Security Administration will sometimes point to an absence of medical records as a reason to deny your application, we can help fill in those gaps and improve your chances.
Assistance When You Need It Most
The bitter irony of depression and bipolar disorder is that they attack the very motivation you need to get help. Applying for Social Security Disability is hard even under the best circumstances, and it becomes exponentially more difficult when dealing with these conditions. We understand that and will take a proactive approach to your application. At every step of the way, we will guide you, explain the next steps and move forward.
