Social Security Disability for Anxiety Disorders
Posted in: Conditions/Illness on December 17th, 2014

Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) is a regular payment people get when they have been injured or otherwise compromised to the point where they are unable to work. In order to receive SSDI, injured or disabled persons must prove that they are incapable of working in their previous job or gaining employment in another industry. The injuries that qualify a person for payments range from emotional or mental disabilities to severe physical trauma, such as a broken spine. Learning disabilities or reading and comprehension troubles caused by head trauma are also considered qualifications for receiving SSDI.

One form of disability that is not properly recognized and does not always qualify a person for Social Security benefits is anxiety. There are many anxiety disorders of varying severity, some linked with depression and PTSD and others linked to stress and pain. Anxiety disorders are chronic conditions, and while sufferers may not feel anxious all the time, the disorder never truly goes away. As such, anxiety disorders can be absolutely debilitating, and can prevent a person from working effectively.

Unfortunately, SSDI is often denied to sufferers of anxiety. A person who shows that they can still perform basic functions of life is often not considered a “severe enough” case, while someone who has trouble showering or being alone for long periods of time will receive benefits. If you suffer from anxiety that prevents you from working, talk with a lawyer and review the Social Security qualifications for SSDI. If you are denied but feel that you deserve benefits, repeal the case; your anxiety is serious, and should be recognized as such.
