Seasonal depression can trigger long-term mental illness

Thanksgiving is already behind us and we are entering into the middle of the holiday season. While most Americans embrace the holidays, sharing time with family and friends, going to holiday parties and sharing gifts, for some Americans the holidays can leave a person depressed.

Mental illness as grounds for Social Security Disability benefits

If a person is unable to work due to a medical condition, that individual could be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits. While you probably know that New Jersey residents can claim benefits for physical conditions, you may not know that certain mental conditions can also be valid grounds for a disability claim.

What does the Division of Disability Determination Services do?

When you apply for Social Security Disability benefits here in New Jersey, your application will first go the Division of Disability Determination Services (DDS), a state agency that processes these claims. You may be a little confused by this, knowing that SSDI is a federal program and wonder why it would go to a New Jersey agency.

You won't know if you have a legitimate claim unless you talk to an experienced attorney. Get in touch with me today.
