Social Security Disability Benefits Guide

(This guide is for information purposes only.  Please contact your local Social Security office direct to apply.)

Social Security disability benefits can provide for your family when an injury, illness, or disability prevents you from working and earning an income.  This guide will explain how Social Security disability benefits work while helping you determine whether your disability, illness, or chronic condition is enough to qualify.  When you’re suffering from a chronic illness or a disability prevents you from holding down a full-time job, simple acts such as planning for the future or keeping current on bills might seem like an impossible feat.  The complexity of the application process, along with the hoops one must jump through to be approved, can make it difficult for those who need these benefits most to qualify. Before you apply for Social Security Disability or SSI, it makes sense to find out whether your condition is commonly considered disabling, and whether you have a shot at securing benefits for yourself and your family.  The Social Security Administration lists a number of illnesses and conditions that are applicable to individuals age 18 and over and to children under the age of 18 when appropriate. Having one of these conditions will usually lead to approval for SSDI/SSI benefits after one completes the application process — including all paperwork, medical exams, and hearings. The following mental disorders are considered severe and a good basis for a disability application, according to the Social Security Administration. However, not everyone who suffers from one of these conditions will qualify.

Mental Disorders:
Schizophrenic, Delusional (Paranoid), Schizoaffective, and Other Psychotic Disorders
Depression
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Bipolar disorder
Personality disorder
Anxiety disorder
