Disability Benefits For Anxiety Disorders
Until you’ve dealt personally with crippling anxiety, it is hard to appreciate what other people go through. Whether it relates to a fear of specific things or circumstances, chronic worry about the unknown, or panic attacks that come on without warning, an anxiety disorder can make it hard to function.
Anxiety disorders can take a variety of forms: post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia or another clinical disorder included in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). When it comes to employment, an anxiety disorder can make it very difficult to consistently stay on task and hold down a job. That’s where Social Security Disability benefits can be invaluable.
