To be eligible to receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI), you must have a physical disability, mental disability or a combination of the two. The Social Security regulations define disability as the inability to perform any substantial gainful activity by reason of any medically determinable physical or mental impairment that can be expected to result in death or that has lasted or can be expected to last for at least 12 consecutive months. A mental disability may include any mental health condition that significantly impairs your ability to work, including:
- Bipolar disorder
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
- Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
- Mood disorders
- Affective disorders
- Social phobia
- Learning disabilities
- Personality disorders
- Autism and other developmental disorders
If you suffer from any of these conditions or any other mental or physical disability that significantly impairs your ability to work, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability and/or SSI benefits.

Put Our Experience To Work For You
SSDI and SSI cases involving mental disorders can be challenging, especially for individuals who are not represented by an experienced Social Security Disability attorney. Unlike cancer, paralysis, diabetes and other physical disabilities that may be easily discernible, mental health conditions are not as obvious. By using records from your psychologist, psychiatrist or other qualified mental health professionals, however, we can build a strong case on your behalf.
Our attorneys have represented thousands of clients with disabilities and have a strong record of results in SSDI and SSI appeals. Cynthia G. Starkey has been representing clients in Social Security Disability appeals for more than 30 years.
We have helped many clients who suffer from depression, anxiety and other mental health challenges obtain SSDI and SSI benefits. As a client of our firm, you will have a strong advocate on your side.
