Mental Illness And Impairments Caused By Physical Injuries
There are important mental health considerations that might be involved in your SSDI benefits claim. If you have a physical impairment that by itself would not be enough to establish eligibility for benefits, but you also have a mental disorder, such as depression or anxiety, we will make sure that the SSA looks at the cumulative effect of your conditions, so that they have a complete picture of how you are being prevented from working.
In other situations, serious physical injuries can result in mental disorders, such as post-traumatic stress disorder, that make working impossible. We work with medical and mental health providers to understand the big picture — and help the SSA understand as well, so that our clients get the benefits they need.
