Can panic attacks qualify me for Social Security Disability?

Understanding of mental health and related disorders has improved over recent years, but there is still a great deal of confusion surrounding mental health conditions and the effects these conditions have on a New Jersey resident's ability to function on a day-to-day basis. Panic attacks and anxiety attacks are just one example of a type of mental disorder that many people do not fully understand. Although people often mention suffering from panic attacks, many people do not realize that panic attacks can constitute a disability that could qualify a person for Social Security disability.

Debate over how to fund New Jersey Social Security Disability

One of the great things about the United States is that it provides certain social safety nets for people who need assistance at different points in their lifetimes. One of these safety nets is the Social Security Disability (SSD) system, which provides financial benefits for people who have suffered a work accident, physical injury or qualifying illness and are unable to work as a result. Unfortunately, the funding of the Social Security Disability is a topic of frequent dispute among politicians.

Many able-bodied and healthy people find it difficult to make ends meet even though they have full-time jobs.

Disabled individuals must struggle not only with having enough money to pay their monthly bills but often must bear additional medical costs associated with their disability. These medical costs make the need for financial assistance even greater.

Immune disorders may qualify for Social Security Disability

When most people think of disability, the image of someone with a physical mobility impairment most often comes to mind. However, the term disability actually refers a much wider range of conditions and impairments, especially in the context of Social Security Disability. Although there are many people who receive SSD benefits because of disabilities that affect their ability to move, walk or perform other basic actions, there are many others who receive Social Security Disability for illness that affects their ability to work.
