Qualifying for Disability with Depression and Anxiety
You might be able to qualify for disability if you have depression, anxiety, or both.
Depression and anxiety can be disabling, making it hard to work.
If you have trouble remembering or concentrating on things, doing your daily activities, or dealing with other people, you might qualify for disability.
If you require help from others or live in a group home or foster home because of your depression or anxiety, you might be disabled.
It is necessary to have a diagnosis from a doctor or licensed psychologist. It is also important that you be seeing a doctor or therapist on a regular basis for your depression and anxiety. It is also important that you follow their recommendations for treatment.
Even if your main disability is physical, be aware that depression and anxiety are normal responses to illness or injury.
But every person is unique and is affected differently by depression and anxiety. If you suffer from depression and anxiety, give us a call to find out if you might qualify for Social Security Disability.
