Social Security Disability Benefits for Mental Disorders
South Carolina Social Security Disability Attorneys Can Help You Get SSD Benefits
If you suffer from a mental illness, you may be able to collect disability payments. While proving a mental illness can be harder than proving cancer, paralysis, asthma, or another obvious physical impairment, it is still possible. The key is to talk to a South Carolina Social Security disability lawyer who can help you prove your injury in your application for disability benefits.
You must show that you have a work history through a prescribed period before applying for Social Security disability. Your injury must be verified by a licensed doctor and it must be included in the list of eligible mental health impairments, which include but are not limited to the following:
- Cognitive disorders
- Substance addiction
- Autism and developmental disorders
- Mental retardation or intellectual disability
- Bipolar disorder
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Personality disorders
- Affective disorders
