Anxiety disorders are considered a type of disabling mental condition by the SSA and may qualify you for SSD benefits, depending on your ability to meet other eligibility criteria. For assistance with qualifying for SSD benefits based on an anxiety disorder, connect with one of our diligent Social Security lawyers.
Anxiety disorders are characterized by patterns of frequent or continuous worry and feelings of anxiousness related to many different events or activities. Symptoms can include difficulty concentrating or controlling worry, fatigue, palpitations, shortness of breath, irritability, sleep disturbances, and more.
According to the SSA, in anxiety-related disorders, anxiety is either the primary disturbance or experienced if one attempts to gain control of symptoms, such as confronting dreaded situations, phobias, or obsessions. Anxiety may qualify for SSD benefits when the requirements in both A and B are satisfied, or when the requirements in both A and C are satisfied:
A. Medically documented findings of at least one of the following:
B. Resulting in at least two of the following:
C. Resulting in complete inability to function independently outside the area of one’s home
Suffering from anxiety can severely disrupt your ability to work and hold down a steady job. In turn, that makes it difficult to provide for your family and pay for the medication and therapy necessary to manage your condition. The SSA sometimes offers benefits to people who have anxiety but is also known to deny valid claims.
