Social Security Disability Benefits for Mental Conditions Archives

SSDI and mental conditions

In Ohio, many workers suffer disabling injuries and illnesses. An accident that leaves them paralyzed from the neck down, lung disease from dust or solvents their workplace, or crippling nerve pain from an unknown source can make it impossible for an afflicted worker to ever obtain gainful employment.

When you just can't deal with it

For residents of Columbus or across Ohio who suffer from mental illness, obtaining Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) benefits can be challenging. In addition to all of the usual difficulties facing anyone who applies for disability benefits from the Social Security Administration (SSA), what with the delays and requests for additional information and more medical records, there are the issues that are specific to mental impairments or conditions.

Is it really a mental impairment?

Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) benefits are available for persons with mental impairments. And similar to the process for obtaining benefits for physical impairment, an applicant must provide medical evidence to demonstrate the mental impairment. Unlike physical impairments, such as a heart condition or paraplegia, it may be more difficult to prove the existence of a medically determinable impairment when it is a mental impairment.
