Many physical disabilities are covered by Social Security disability benefits, which might lead you to believe that you cannot get support unless you are physically disabled. However, you should know that if you have a condition that affects your mental health, you do not have to suffer. An anxiety disorder is just one type of psychological condition that may be covered by the SSA, depending on how severe it is.

Millions of Americans suffer from one of several types of anxiety disorders. For some people, the issue is mild and does not affect their daily lives, meaning that they can still work full-time. For others, the condition is severe, making it impossible for them to stay at a job for very long. Those with anxiety disorders may experience one or several of the following:

  • Flashbacks or recurring nightmares
  • Feeling of impending doom
  • Panic attacks that make breathing difficult
  • Fear of being in public, meeting new public, or going to new places, to name a few common worries
  • Compulsively repeating tasks or routines that only need to be done once or not at all

Of course, anxiety disorders may be characterized by many more symptoms than these. Often, you may experience depression along with your anxiety disorder. If your condition is severe enough that it strongly affects your life, you have probably sought treatment through medical doctors and counselors. As long as you have the documentation of this you have a chance at getting Social Security disability benefits for this condition.

Once you get a lawyer and apply for disability payments, you will find that you do not have to suffer through your condition. If it affects your life enough that you cannot work, you shouldn't have to spiral into poverty or extreme debt just to live life. Find out from a lawyer how to apply for benefits today.
