Tips for Winning Disability in Pennsylvania
To win Social Security Disability benefits on the basis of a mental illness, you must receive ongoing treatment with your therapists and doctors.
Many people with mental health problems stop seeing their doctors because no treatment seems to help. This is a mistake. Medical records provide the most important evidence of disability in a Social Security case.
Social Security routinely denies claims for benefits if people stop seeing their doctor, stop taking their prescribed medications, or continually fail to appear at scheduled doctor appointments.
