Some Social Security disability applications improperly approved

Many people in Pennsylvania rely on Social Security disability benefits to make ends meet if they are unable to work due to a disability. However, a new report reveals some concerning information regarding the approval of some of these claims.

Seeking SSDI or SSI for disabilities relating to mental illness

When people think of someone who may choose to pursue Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income, they may immediately assume that the applicant suffers from some sort of physical injury or illness. However, mental illness can be just as debilitating as a physical injury -- even more in some cases, as these types of illnesses are often hushed-up or go untreated due to the stigma surrounding them. However, it is very important that those in Pennsylvania who need financial help due to a mental illness seek the benefits they are entitled to. Our law firm understands that this can be a confusing process.
