Those Suffering From A Mental Disability May Be Entitled To Disability Benefits

To be eligible to receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits, you must have a mental disability, a physical disability or a combination of the two that is expected to significantly impair your ability to work for at least 12 months.

A mental disability may include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Schizophrenia
  • Other mental health conditions that impair your ability to work

If you suffer from panic attacks, if you suffer from clinical depression that makes it difficult for you to get through the day, if you suffer from anxiety that impairs your ability to maintain a regular sleep schedule or if you face other difficult mental health challenges that significantly impair your ability to work, you may be entitled to receive SSDI benefits.

Cases involving mental disabilities are highly complex. Unlike a spinal cord injury, cancer or many other physical disabilities, mental disabilities are more challenging to diagnose. Proving such claims requires a high level of skill and expertise. The attorney you choose to handle your case must be able to ensure that your mental health issues are properly diagnosed, that all necessary medical documents have been gathered, and that a compelling argument has been made that fully explains how your impairments impact your ability to work.
