According to The Kim Foundation, a trusted resource on mental disorders, an estimated 26.2 percent or 57.7 million of the American population aged 18 and above suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder. These individuals’ abilities are often impaired which prevents them from being able to work. If you or a loved one are among those afflicted with mental disorders, you may be able to claim disability benefits from the Social Security Administration (SSA). A skilled lawyer from esteemed law firms like Jan Dils Attorney At Law, L.C. can help determine social security disability eligibility and assist in filing for claims.
