Social Security Disability Benefits for Mental Conditions Archives

Avoid being the target of a disability fraud investigation

How do you avoid being accused of Social Security disability (SSD) fraud when you have an "invisible" disorder like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder or some other form of mental illness?

How to apply for Social Security Disability for mental conditions

Mental conditions are not exempt from Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. In fact, these issues are discussed in Section 12 of the Blue Book published by the Social Security Administration (SSA). Here's some advice on applying for Social Security benefits for mental conditions.

Malingerers make it harder on others to get approved for benefits

Sometimes people get sick for reasons that doctors can't identify. However, just because the physical cause for a patient's symptoms can't be identified doesn't mean that he or she is malingering -- faking an illness -- in order to get approved for disability benefits.

How long does it take before disability benefits are approved?

When Philadelphia residents are facing difficult circumstances, it is vital that they receive the assistance they need as soon as possible. Each day, week and month without that assistance can make the situation even worse.
