Social Security Disability is not something that is deserved and handed out to those who have "worked all their life." Unfortunately, there is a lot of government "red tape" and paperwork.
Disability is something that must be proven, which is not always easy to do, especially if you have a Mental Health disability such as Bipolar Disorder, Depression or Anxiety. The first thing I ask a potential client who is suffering from any type of mental impairment, is "are you in counseling?"
If a new client is not engaging in active counseling or compliant with medications, I may not take the case, or if I do, they are required to seek counseling immediately and I refer them to someone in their area.
