PTSD And Social Security Disability

For those who have been through harrowing experiences, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can be an unfortunate consequence. From childhood abuse to military service, there are many types of situations that can cause a person to suffer PTSD. Symptoms of PTSD can vary greatly, but some common ways people with PTSD are affected include:

  • Fear of certain places
  • Fear of being out of control
  • Fear of leaving the house
  • Hypervigilance
  • Fear that others are about to harm you

For those suffering PTSD, being able to hold a job may be too much of a challenge. If that is the case and your PTSD prevents you from being able to work, Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits can provide a degree of financial support that can create some relief for you and your loved ones.

A Valid Claim Often Requires More Than Just A Legitimate Diagnosis

The challenge to securing SSDI benefits for PTSD is presenting a strong claim to the Social Security Administration (SSA). The SSA is very particular about what constitutes a valid claim. Simply having a legitimate diagnosis does not ensure that the SSA will find your claim valid. The supporting information must be presented in a particular fashion that the SSA recognizes. Not all physicians understand how to most effectively present the supporting evidence for their diagnoses. We can help them present all relevant medical records in a manner the SSA will accept.
