5 Unexpected Causes for a Social Security Disability Case
Depression could be one of the many mental disorders that could qualify you for Social Security Disability. Clearly, this isn’t a physical condition, but you must be diagnosed by a doctor and if you apply for Social Security Disability, agree to cooperate when it comes to supplying medical evidence.
Anxiety or a disorder in which you feel excessively nervous, typically panic attacks or compulsive behavior are involved can also be a mental condition where you may qualify for Social Security Disability. A good way to think about this is can be – What conditions can keep me from working or completing a task at work?
Autism can make normal social interactions pretty difficult for a person. This could affect someone in their everyday lives and at work. This is another mental condition that may qualify you for Social Security Disability.
Schizophrenia or paranoia can also be a mental condition that could land you in the approved section of Social Security disability. Imagine trying to work in a store or restaurant, being in public around many people you don’t know while having this condition. This could affect your work.
5. Bipolar Disorder
If you are bipolar, you could be having intense episodes that could cause you trouble at work and give you cause for a Social Security Disability case.
