Receiving Social Security Disability Benefits for Anxiety DisordersReceiving Social Security Disability Benefits for Anxiety Disorders

We all experience a feeling of anxiety throughout our lives as it is a normal reaction to stress. Anxiety helps us cope with all the events and situations we face in life. However, sometimes anxiety becomes extreme and leads to the dread of day-to-day situations; therefore, it becomes a debilitating disorder.

The five major types of anxiety disorders are:

  • Generalized anxiety disorder
  • OCD, or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
  • Panic Disorder
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Social Anxiety Disorder

According to the Anxiety Disorders Association of America or WebMD’s Anxiety/Panic Disorders Health Center, anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the United States. Also, people who suffer from anxiety disorders are two to three times more likely to have an alcohol or substance abuse problem in their lives and are more likely to suffer from eating and sleeping disorders.

Anxiety disorders present with both emotional and physical symptoms including:

  • Sweating
  • Dizziness
  • Upset stomach
  • Frequent urination
  • Tremors
  • Headaches
  • Feelings of apprehension
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Feeling jumpy or jittery
  • Irritability

Anxiety disorders can prevent you from being able to perform typical, everyday activities, and perform in a work environment. For this reason, anxiety disorders are considered disabilities and you may be entitled to receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). SSDI is a monetary benefit intended to aid those who can no longer work due to a disability – whether that disability be physical or mental.
