Depression and SSD Benefits Attorneys
Depression can be a paralyzing condition, making it difficult to even get out of bed. If your depression is preventing you from working, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability or Supplemental Security Income.
At Ross, Quinn and Ploppert, our lawyers have the experience required to help you successfully obtain disability benefits for a mental illness such as depression. Our lawyers are familiar with the type of medical evidence your doctor will need to provide to support your claim. We can also guide you through the appeals process.

When Is Depression Considered a Disability?
To be considered a disability, your depression must exist for a year or more and be severe enough (in itself or in combination with other impairments) to prevent you from doing any work, including your previous job or any other job.
Proving that your depression is severe enough to be considered a disability can be a daunting process. The majority of people who apply for Social Security Disability benefits — SSD or SSDI — based on a mental or physical condition are turned down, at least initially. Your chances of success increase significantly if you are represented by an attorney.
