APPLY FOR SSD BENEFITS WITH CANNON DISABILITY
IF YOU HAVE MENTAL IMPAIRMENTS SEEK HELP TO APPLY FOR SSD BENEFITS
Apply for SSD benefits with Cannon Disability Law. We understand you need to apply for benefits. But, the SSA’s application process is difficult to understand on your own. The SSA requires you to complete an application form, submit medical records, and complete work reports. If you have symptoms of Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Depression, or some other mental illness, should you get help? The answer is yes. Especially if you have difficulty understanding what you read or concentrating on tasks.
What if you have a physical disability? You should still apply for benefits. Likewise, you may still need help with the application process. However, if you have a computer and access to the internet, you can file your application online. You can also call you local Social Security office and request that they send you a paper copy of the forms that you need to apply. The SSA will be looking to your medical records to determine if you have an eligible disability.
In order for the SSA to find you have a qualifying disability, you need to make sure they know the names, addresses, and phone numbers of your doctors. If you do not have a treating doctor, there are clinics that might treat you for free or for a low cost payment. Likewise, there are counselors and mental health clinics that can treat your for disabling mental impairments, like depression and anxiety. On this website we have a list of free and low cost health resources for Utah. We also have a list of free mental health resources for Nevada. You should use these lists to obtain a treating doctor.

WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP YOUR CASE DURING THE LONG WAIT FOR SSA TO MAKE A DECISION?
Waiting for the SSA to make a decision is frustrating. It takes a long time. Some people get so discouraged that they stop going to the doctor. Don’t do that. The best thing you can do to help your case it to keep going to the doctor. Stay on the medications he or she prescribes. Don’t quit taking your medications because you think they aren’t working. Give them a chance to work. Some medications take up to three months before you see a benefit. This is especially true with mental health medications.
If you stop taking your prescription medications, how do you think that looks to a judge? Trust us, it doesn’t look good. The judge is going to think that you aren’t doing what your doctor tells you to do to get better. If your medications really aren’t working and you have given them enough time to work, then tell your doctor. Many times there is another medication you can try. It is worth the time to try another medication. Perhaps it will be the one that works.
If you keep trying medications, with the help of your doctor, how do you think that looks to the judge? It looks good. You are doing everything you can to try to get better. However, your doctor’s notes will say treatment isn’t working. You don’t want your doctor’s notes to say you quit medications or treatment on your own. You want the medical record to say that you are compliant. If you are compliant with treatment, your doctor is more likely to help you. If your doctor can see you are doing your best to get better and it isn’t working. Then, your doctor will probably support your disability claim by writing a letter to the SSA.
