Disability Benefits For PTSD

Successfully obtaining SSDI benefits for post-traumatic stress disorder requires significant evidence of the effects of a traumatic event in an applicant's life. Common symptoms of PTSD can include:

  • Recurring, intrusive flashbacks about a traumatic event that cause significant stress
  • Frequent nightmares
  • Frequent panic attacks
  • Avoidance of particular places, persons or situations

Many SSDI claims for PTSD will be approved through anxiety-related disorders. Other claims will be approved through the use of medical-vocational guidelines, which are used in cases where medical considerations alone are not enough to account for the extent of an applicant's impairment. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with PTSD, we can determine the best way to proceed with your claim.
