Disability Benefits for Bipolar Disorder
Social Security Disability Lawyers
Do you suffer from bipolar disorder?
Bipolar disorder is a mental health condition that causes shifts in mood, behavior, and energy, causing drastic shifts between depressive to manic episodes. Depressive moods may cause long periods of worry, feelings of sadness, loss of interest in activities, fatigue, decreased sleep and appetite, problems concentrating, and thoughts of suicide. Manic moods may cause long periods of feeling euphoria, irritability, inflated self-esteem, increased energy, insomnia, impulsivity, and racing thoughts.
Social Security looks at how bipolar disorder affects your maximum mental ability to perform work-related activities on a continuing basis. Social Security is required to consider the nature and extent of your bipolar disorder, and how this condition restricts your ability to carry out activities of daily living, your ability to maintain social functioning, and your ability to maintain concentration, persistence, or pace in a competitive work environment. Social Security will also assess whether you are able to make simple work-related judgments, your ability to adapt to changes in your work setting, and your ability to handle work pressures.
