Video Description

"Severe and chronic depression can be disabling and result in a favorable decision from Social Security. However, in recent years, Social Security has put more scrutiny on depression and anxiety cases so you need a through and complete record and support from a treating mental health professional.

In this video I explain how I approach depression cases. I explain what I look for in terms of medical treatment and support from the doctor and I explain how I prepare my clients for testimony.

A high level of depression will interfere with your ability to maintain attention and concentration and to behave in an emotionally stable manner and keep up with the required pace of work. If your symptoms or medication side effects make it impossible for you to work in a reliable manner then you may be eligible for disability benefits.
