Anxiety, SSD and additional stress

On Behalf of | Dec 4, 2019 | Firm News

There are a number of different mental challenges that people experience, whether their brain is severely injured in an accident or they develop debilitating anxiety. In fact, an anxiety disorder could make someone eligible for Social Security Disability benefits, depending on the extent of their situation. Moreover, some people who are having a very hard time with anxiety may face additional stressors as they try to approach and work through the process of pursuing Social Security Disability benefits.

If you are struggling with an anxiety disorder, you likely know how difficult daily life can be. You may have a hard time interacting with others, or even leaving the house. Some people do not take these disorders seriously and think that people who suffer from an anxiety disorder simply need to snap out of it. Unfortunately, for many people, this simply is not possible. Anxiety disorders arise for all sorts of reasons, from a traumatic event to a cause that cannot be pinpointed. Many people have had to step down from their position because of extreme stress and anxiety, and some people are unable to secure another job because of the mental hardships they have to work through.

Applying for SSD benefits can be very difficult regardless of the physical or mental reasons why people are unable to keep working. For those with an anxiety disorder, the process can be particularly tough, so it is pivotal to be fully prepared for what lies ahead. By breaking the SSD application process down into smaller segments, some people have an easier time getting the help they desperately need.
