Is a mental disability handled the same way as a physical disability by the SSA?

Essentially, yes. A disability can be generally understood to be either a physical or mental condition that is somehow limiting and might even prevent a person from holding a normal job. However, what will vary between people’s claims, whether they are making claims for physical or mental disabilities, is the amount of compensation that they will get. Every disability claim is handled on an individual basis, so knowing the exact way that your claim will be handled by the Social Security Administration is somewhat difficult.

The best way to maximize the chances of getting the compensation that you need and understanding how the SSA will handle your claim is to contact a qualified Indianapolis Social Security disability lawyer of the Hankey Law Office today at 317-634-8565.
