Could You Use Some Support?

When you wake up every day, you feel on edge. You’re nervous or worried about the things you have to do, or problems in the world. You have a feeling of doom, even if nothing threatening is happening around you.

And you have trouble concentrating. You can’t sleep. No matter what you try to do, you can’t turn off the racing thoughts.

This is anxiety, a mental disorder that affects 40 million adults in the United States, according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America. It’s the most common mental illness. Most people experience some form it at some point in their lives.

But the commonness of anxiety also brings challenges: it’s hard to get other people to understand that your case makes it impossible to work.

How to Qualify for Social Security Disability

with Anxiety in Indianapolis

The hard thing about a Social Security Disability anxiety claim is that you have to prove your symptoms are so serious that you can’t work.

With anxiety, your friends might think you’re being dramatic or too sensitive. Maybe co-workers think you’re just having some bad days.

A Social Security claims examiner might question whether you truly can’t manage your anxiety enough to work.

But the Social Security Administration (SSA) lists 15 types of mental disorders that qualify for benefits, and anxiety is included. This means that you could potentially qualify for Social Security Disability benefits and receive monthly checks to pay for your expenses.

You must meet three basic qualifiers:

  • Your anxiety will keep you out of work for at least a year
  • You can’t do your current job
  • You are unable to switch to another line of work

Then, you’ll have to show that you’re experiencing symptoms of anxiety such as:

  • Fatigue
  • Muscle tension
  • Sleep disturbance
  • Irritability
  • Trouble concentrating

Additionally, you must demonstrate:

  • Extreme limitation in one or a noteworthy limitation in two of the following areas: your ability to concentrate for long periods of time, your ability to process information, your ability to care for yourself and your ability to interact with other people.
  • Or, you can present two years of medical documentation that demonstrates you have anxiety, like records of your therapy and medical treatment and psychosocial supports—structured environments that help you cope—as well as documentation that shows you find it difficult to deal with change.

Gathering all this proof seems overwhelming. What if you don’t turn in the right forms?

That’s why Hanley Disability is here. We can help you collect your records so you can focus on feeling better. All you have to do is get in touch.
