The Social Security Administration (SSA) recognizes anxiety disorders as disabilities. These disabilities may qualify a person for benefits. Applicants still need to meet certain criteria to be approved for disability benefits. Individuals may be eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) for anxiety.
The Antonowicz Group is here to help. Individuals may obtain disability benefits for anxiety, panic disorders, OCD, and related impairments. Our experienced disability attorneys can help claimants navigate the guidelines for successful claims.
Applying for Social Security for Anxiety Disorders
Each type of anxiety disorder has its own set of criteria that must be met. The impairments in this group include the following:
- Generalized Anxiety Disorder
- Panic Disorder or Agoraphobia
- Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
Applicants must have a combination of specific symptoms. Further, these symptoms must prevent the person from working.
The SSA’s guidelines can be extremely confusing. Our attorneys know these guidelines inside and out. We help people navigate through the confusion.
The disability lawyers at the Antonowicz Group also understand how anxiety disorders affect lives. We know the challenges they present. We are here to help clients get disability benefits. We want them to have a good quality of life.
Supporting Documents & Medical Evidence
Thorough documentation is needed with each application. Because anxiety is a mental impairment, symptoms cannot be physically seen. Claimants need support from their medical team. This evidence should at least include the following:
- Results of treatments
- Lab results
If the applicant has been going to a therapist, those notes are helpful, too. Family and friends can also share details of the symptoms they have seen. Our disability lawyers will help determine what is needed for each application on an individual basis. Support should prove that anxiety makes the applicant unable to work.
