Schizophrenia and Social Security Disability

SSD and Schizophrenia - Philadelphia Social Security Attorney

If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with Schizophrenia, you may qualify for social security disability (SSD) benefits.   Contact our office today to find out how we can help you with your social security disability claim.  We handle new applications as well as denials. 

THe Social Security Administration has over one hundred medical listings that set out certain criteria that one must meet in order to qualify for either SSD or SSI.  If your schizophrenia rises to the level of severity whereby you can show that you meet a medical listing, you will be determined disabled by the Social Security Administration for the medical requirment of a SSD claim. 

In order to qulaify for social security disability or supplemental security income with a diagnosis of schozophrenia, you will need well documented medical records demonstrating that the severity of your condition rises to the level to meet a listing.  It can be very helpful if your psychiatrist, psychologist, or therapist will submit a narrative report to the Social Security Administration on your behalf outlining your symptoms and how they prevent you from working in substantial gainful employment on any type of sustained basis. 

If you can not afford your own physician, Social Security will typically send you for an exam with a physician who they will pay to conduct a consultative exam in order to better understand your medical condition. 

Contact us today in order to speak to a Philadelphia social security disability attorney who has the exeprience to help you get the nenefits you deserve.
