California Qualifying Mental Disorder Attorneys
The Social Security Administration lists each of the mental impairments that will automatically qualify you for benefits in what is known as the blue book, or the impairment listing manual that the SSA uses. The specific nature of the language found in the blue book can be confusing, and it can be difficult to determine whether it will be possible to actually claim compensation for the mental impairment with which you or someone you love has been diagnosed. Legal help from the team at LS Disability can help you determine whether your diagnosis is included.
Applicants do not necessarily need to have a mental impairment that satisfies each of the blue book’s listing requirements, so you may still be awarded benefits if the SSA determines that your specific impairment is medically equivalent to one of the listings in the blue book. At LS Disability, our attorneys can determine your eligibility and then help you ensure your application is as complete as possible.
