Major Depressive Disorder

Worcester Depression Disability Attorney

Westborough Social Security Disability Attorney

Serious depression affects tens of millions of Americans. It can be one of the most debilitating of all mental illnesses, leaving sufferers incapable of performing even menial everyday tasks. Even when taking proper medication and getting medical treatment, remaining employed when suffering from severe depression isn’t possible for many people.

If you or a loved one in your family is suffering from severe depression and can no longer remain employed, you are entitled to seek benefits through Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). Severe depression is not something that a person can just “snap out” of. Social Security benefits are a financial lifeline for individuals and families coping with severe and persistent mental illness like depression.

SSDI is not a welfare program. Every worker pays a portion of insurance premiums through automatic payroll deduction or direct payment. Most of us have been paying part of our wages to the Social Security Administration for all of our working lives. People suffering with depression have every right and reason to seek benefits, but the application process is confusing even for people enjoying strong mental health. Most initial claims are rejected for procedural or technical reasons, leaving many people frustrated.

Eden Rafferty is ready to help. If you have become disabled and can no longer earn a living in the workplace, you are eligible to apply for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. Founding partner, attorney Jane Eden, leads our SSDI team and has earned a reputation for success. She has written articles and lectured frequently on Social Security Disability.
