Written by BooAdmin. Posted in Blogs

Mental Disorder — Tinley Park, IL — Horn & Kelley P.C. Attorneys at LawThere are some mental disorders that can prevent a person from working. Because of this, some mental disorders qualify for Social Security Disability.

Here are some of those mental disorders.

Somatoform Disorders

When a person has physical symptoms that cannot be medically explained, they most likely have a somatoform disorder. In order to qualify as a mental condition, the symptoms of the somatoform disorder cannot be related to substance abuse or a medical condition. Symptoms of somatoform disorders must also not be related to another mental disorder.

Claimant is approved in one step at the application level!
