According to Stanford Medicine, bipolar disorder is characterized by severe and disabling highs and lows that affects 2.2 million Americans.
I represent a 55 year old former computer programmer from New Jersey whose Social Security Disability (“SSD”) application was approved yesterday without a hearing. The NJ State agency, which makes the initial decision on SSD application, requested the records from each treating source. We provided extensive detailed treatment records and functional assessments from the claimant’s psychiatrist, neurologist, and internist.
While the SSD application was approved, the State agency is holding up benefits until a representative payee is authorized for the claimant. It is always advisable to have a representative payee in mind when seeking SSD benefits when the claim is based on bipolar disorder.Previous Next
