Get Help Filing for Disability for Anxiety

Applying for–and perhaps fighting for–Social Security disability benefits is challenging for most people. If you’re struggling with a condition like anxiety, it can be even tougher. Having the right assistance can help ensure that you’ve put together the strongest application possible. It can also significantly reduce the stress associated with the process. Here’s what you need to know about getting the help you need. 

What is Anxiety? 

Most of us experience anxiousness at times. That’s different from having an anxiety disorder. A condition like generalized anxiety disorder can have a significant impact on your daily life, including the ability to earn a living. 

Some common symptoms include: 

  • Nervousness
  • A sense of impending doom
  • Hyperventilating
  • Rapid heart rate
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Stomach problems

Does the Social Security Administration (SSA) Recognize This Disorder As A Disability?

This disorder is included in the Social Security Blue Book–a listing of conditions and related symptoms and limitations that may qualify a person for SSD benefits. However, that doesn’t mean being diagnosed with this disorder automatically qualifies you for SSD. The Blue Book sets forth very specific criteria for a person with an anxiety disorder to qualify for disability benefits.

When you submit an application for SSD benefits for this disorder, it’s important that you provide documentation that supports a determination of disability.

That means understanding the Blue Book criteria and the other factors the SSA considers in assessing an SSD application. It also means ensuring that you have solid medical documentation. Since this disorder isn’t objectively measurable or determined by a test, it can be more difficult to establish a claim for this type of disability.

If you haven’t yet applied for SSD benefits, it’s in your best interest to consult an experienced disability benefits advocate right away. Your best chance at getting an approval on the first round and saving months or years is to submit the strongest possible application and documentation.
