Do anxiety attacks qualify you for Social Security Disability?

On Behalf of | May 25, 2018 | Social Security Disability Benefits for Mental Conditions

Many Houston area residents suffer debilitating mental conditions because of anxiety. Anxiety can be a dreadful condition that may not allow a person to live a full life. When anxiety becomes a serious issue for a person, they may be able to qualify for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits.

Anxiety is a mental condition that can affect how a person performs at their job and at home. There are many symptoms of anxiety that include an inability to concentrate, avoidance of crowds, feeling of panic and worry that consumes a person’s life. Those who have anxiety know how difficult it can be to even function every day. Of course, when a person is not able to work because of their disability, they also don’t receive any income in order to live. This is where Social Security Disability benefits may be available.

SSD income may be available for those who are suffering from anxiety. If a person has a medical diagnosis of anxiety and the anxiety has caused them to be out of work for at least a year, they may be eligible. A legal professional who is skilled in Social Security Disability understands the challenges their clients are facing. They know what steps their client needs to take in order to obtain these benefits they so greatly need. They can guide their clients through initial applications or advise with claims that have previously been denied.

Living with anxiety can be a life-altering experience for many Houston residents. Having an attorney help with the complicated process of obtaining SSD benefits can greatly improve a person’s chances of receiving these important benefits.
