Psychological and Emotional Disabilities

Social Security benefits can be claimed by those suffering from psychological or emotional disabilities. These disabilities may prevent people from performing simple or complicated tasks, interacting with others, or maintaining focus. By demonstrating that these functions have been impaired, a person may be able to prove their disability.

While only a medical professional can diagnose these disorders, people who suffer from them may experience symptoms such as: difficulty concentrating, difficulty sleeping, and feelings of isolation, irritation, or anger. If you suffer from these symptoms, a psychologist or psychiatrist can document limitations in a way that a primary care physician cannot. In order to approve a claim based on a psychological or emotional disability, the Social Security Administration will often require a diagnosis made by a psychologist or psychiatrist, rather than a primary care physician.

The Social Security Administration looks at how these conditions affect a person’s maximum mental ability to perform work-related activities. The Social Security Administration is required to consider the nature and extent of the condition, as well as how the condition restricts daily living, social functioning, and job performance.

If a condition interferes with a person’s ability to manage daily activities or maintain employment, Social Security disability lawyers at the Law Offices of Eric A. Shore can help. Our attorneys handle SSD and SSI claims nationwide.  Contact us online or call 1-800-CANT-WORK.
