Just because you are able-bodied doesn't mean you are able to work. The ability to complete simple tasks while suffering from depression, anxiety or bipolar disorder doesn't mean you are able to go to work every day or stay focused to complete tasks. Our Omaha disability lawyer can answer your questions.
Social Security often denies mental illness claims on the basis that the applicant is able do simple unskilled work. This denial notice does not recognize that individuals with mental illness often have trouble getting to work and keeping a job when they have one.

Do you or a family member suffer from a mental, emotional or psychological disability or disorder? Do you have questions on how to obtain Social Security benefits?.
Questions for Qualifying Mental Disorders
The Social Security Administration can approve Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits for individuals with mental disorders, but often involves questions and needs to be convincing. For instance, it may require evidence that shows:
- Why are you unable to effectively hold any job?
- How does your disorder relate to missed work days and the loss of jobs?
- How do issues relating to concentration, memory, and task engagement and difficulty in getting along with others relate to your disorder and prevent you from working?
- Are you able to get along with co-workers, supervisors, and the general public?
We can obtain medical and psychological reports from doctors, psychologists and psychiatrists, and develop your case around the theme that being successful at a job means you need to have the psychological ability to 1) get there, and 2) perform the work. We are experienced in a broad range of mental disorders, including:
- Bipolar disorder or manic depression
- Anxiety disorders
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Autistic Disorder and other pervasive developmental disorders
- Schizoaffective disorder
- Mental, emotional and cognitive disorders resulting from traumatic brain injuries
- Learning disabilities such as low intellectual functioning
