Questions About Mental Disability

About a third of people who receive disability through  Social Security insurance or SSI have a mental disorder such as depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, intellectual disability, Alzheimer's, autism, or a personality disorder. It can be more difficult to prove a mental disability than a physical disability, and harder to understand what mental health symptoms and limitations you need to have in order to be approved for benefits. Here are some common questions we get about applying for disability benefits for a mental, cognitive, or emotional disorder.
