This site should help those who are contemplating applying for Social Security Disability or Supplemental Security Income and those individuals who have already applied for Social Security Disability benefits, no matter what stage they are at in the Social Security Disability process. If you have any questions that are not answered by this site or want a free consultation, please feel free to e-mail me at karl@ultimatedisabilityguide.comvisit my law firm's website or call 877-527-5529.  I will try to answer any questions you might have about Social Security Disability (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). 
 

     My name is Karl Kazmierczak, Esq. I am a Board Certified Social Security Disability Specialist by the National Board of Social Security Disability Advocacy.  The title is not recognized in all states. Please click on the following link for more information on what it means to be a Board Certified Social Security Disability Specialist. I have handled thousands of cases in New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. 

How to Use this site.  If you are new to the process of Social Security Disability, I recommend you start by reading the "disability process."  This page will give you an overview of how your claim is processed and what procedural steps you have to take.  To understand how SSA determines if you are disabled you should read the page, "am I disabled?".  After you read this page, you should follow the different links to get a better understanding of what it takes to prove your disability.  I also strongly suggest you read "how to win" and "key to SSDI and SSI".  There is a lot more information on this site, but this should give you a good starting point to help your claim.
 
     If you need tips on how to win your SSDI or SSI claim, continue to read this site and bookmark it so you can come back and use it as a reference while you take on the Social Security Disability process. Please note that it is my intention to provide accurate and up-to-date information on this site, as I put in great effort to do this. However, the information on this site is not guaranteed and no lawyer-client relationship exists.  This site is not a substitute for consultation with a lawyer.

Depression and Your Social Security Disability Claim
Many people applying for Social Security disability benefits who have physical impairments know they are not the same as they used to be cognitively yet never seek treatment for depression. These individuals may notice difficulty in relationships, unexplained crying spells, feelings of worthlessness, memory loss and many other symptoms. Despite the symptoms many of these individuals don't get help because of the stigma involved with mental illness or it quite simply never occurs to them it could be depression. Most people who live with chronic pain or illness will probably suffer from some degree of depression as a result. Getting treatment is extremely important for one's health and also can be important for one's Social Security disability or SSI claim. To understand how a diagnosis of depression can affect an ssdi claim please see my web-page called depression and Social Security disability. After reading my website page I think you will see the importance of getting treatment for your depression as it relates to your Social Security disability claim. I think I should make clear here that if you have no symptoms of depression than you should not claim depression in your Social Security disability claim. The reason for me discussing this issue is because I often see people with multiple medical conditions who clearly have symptoms of depression yet never get checked by a psychiatrist. You must always remember that Social Security will look at all of your medical conditions combined to determine if you are disabled. So even if depression is just one of your many medical conditions if you are getting treatment for it and you are limited in any way from it then it should help your Social Security disability claim.
