Getting disability benefits for a mental condition

Living with a mental illness or other mental condition can be very difficult. People can spend their entire lives just fighting to live as normal of a life as possible. It may be difficult for them to complete basic tasks or to live on their own. For many of these individuals, working is out of the question. Many struggle so much just to complete everyday tasks, and adding a job to the mix would be too much.

However, just like everybody else, individuals with mental conditions still need income in order to survive. They still have expenses and bills that need to be paid. Some people receive support from their families, but others are left with very few options.

Social Security disability benefits can often help in these cases. These benefits can provide monthly income to people with mental conditions. This monthly income can help people pay for essentials that they need. Without this income, many people who have mental conditions would be destitute.

However, it is not always easy to obtain these benefits. Often, people need the help of an attorney to get approved. There are requirements that must be met at multiple levels in order to get approved for benefits by the Social Security Administration.

First, the person's mental condition must be severe enough. Next, the person must meet certain employment or asset requirements. Other circumstances, like the applicant's criminal record, can also change the person's eligibility.

Understanding a person's rights to Social Security benefits is extremely important. The attorneys at Krasno Krasno & Onwudinjo have years of experience fighting for individuals in the Philadelphia area.
