WHAT MENTAL DISORDERS QUALIFY FOR DISABILITY BENEFITS?
The Social Security Administration (SSA) recognizes the impact mental disorders have on many American’s lives and their potential to cause long-term disability. In order to be eligible for disability benefits for a mental disorder, the condition must be diagnosed by a doctor and meet the criteria required for any disability including:
- The mental disorder must prevent you from doing any work which you have done until now.
- The disorder must make you unable to reasonably train for another job.
