Disability is not always caused by physical illnesses. If you are unable to work at all due to the mental disorder, you may be entitled to SSD benefits. Many different types of mental or psychological disorder diagnoses result in a patient qualifying for SSD, including:
- Bipolar Disorder
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- Organic Mental Disorders (including organic brain syndrome)
- Panic attacks
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Many of experiences and situations can lead to the development of PTSD, such as being the victim of a violent crime or combat deployments with the military. Regardless of the cause of your PTSD, you may be able to seek SSD benefits if the extent of your PTSD leaves you unable work and to properly function in an employment situation.
