Qualifying for Benefits Under Mental Disorders

Qualifying for Benefits Under Mental Disorders

The Social Security Administration, employers and “independent” physicians with a stake in denying benefits can be highly skeptical of mental disability claims under mental health listings. At the law firm of Cox & Stansberry Law, LLC, we know that mental disorders can be every bit as incapacitating as a physical disability.

We will treat you with dignity and compassion and give you an honest assessment of your Social Security Disability claim under a mental or cognitive impairment. If you have a good case, you will not find attorneys who are more qualified or more engaged in pursuit of the benefits you need.

Attorney Janet P. Cox  has won benefits for a wide range of mental disorder claims. She is knowledgeable about the medical criteria and the corroborating evidence necessary to prove how a person’s diagnosed condition is also disabling. We are equipped to handle all such mental and cognitive deficit claims:

  • Clinical depression
  • Bipolar disorder (“manic/depressive”)
  • Panic attacks and other anxiety disorders
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Schizophrenia
  • Autism spectrum disorders, including Asperger’s
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Mental retardation
  • Borderline IQ and learning disabilities (especially with physical disabilities)

Ms. Cox has dedicated her career to Social Security Disability (SSD and SSI), and have more than 30 years experience in this field. She served earlier in her career as Social Security staff attorney, handling administrative appeals of these very same types of claims.

They use their insights in initial claims and in hearings and appeals to strengthen medical records with statements from physicians, neurologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, vocational specialists and other professionals. These experts can attest that the mental disorder — especially if coupled with any physical impairments — effectively renders you or your loved one incapable of returning to the work force or holding down a job for any length of time.
