Do You Qualify For Disability Benefits For Depression Or Anxiety?
An individual may be eligible to receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits if he or she suffers from a physical impairment or mental impairment (or a combination of the two) that significantly affects his or her ability to work for a year or more. If you have severe depression or an anxiety disorder and are unable to maintain substantial gainful employment, you may have a right to receive SSDI or SSI benefits.
