The Social Security Administration's (SSA) listing of impairments includes mental disorders. If you suffer from a severe anxiety disorder and meet its criteria, then you could be entitled to receive Social Security disability benefits. SSA Criteria for Anxiety Disorders When Filing for Disability in New York
Under SSA criteria, the severity of the anxiety disorder must be significant enough to warrant disability benefits. To better understand if you qualify to receive disability, you should speak with a lawyer who handles Social Security cases. Some of the symptoms that qualify an individual to receive disability for an anxiety disorder:
persistent, irrational fears;
recurrent, severe panic attacks;
recurrent compulsions or obsessions; and
recurrent, intrusive recalling of a traumatic experience.
Medical documentation, including records and notes from a doctor, will be required in order to demonstrate the signs and symptoms an individual experiences. Along with these signs one must have marked restrictions or difficulty with daily living, social functioning or concentration. These must significantly interfere with an individual's life in order to qualify.
Determining the severity of an individual's anxiety disorder will require accurate, thorough evidence. A lawyer can help you collect this.
In addition to the physical and psychological aspects of an anxiety disorder, the determination of benefits will also depend on whether or not an individual is engaging in "substantial gainful activity" (SGA). This means if the claimant makes more than $1,000 a month they may not be eligible to receive disability benefits. How Bronx Social Security Disability Lawyers Can Help
