Disability benefits attorney for obsessive compulsive disorder

Obsessive compulsive disorder is commonly recognized by repetitive actions. However, this condition is far more complex and can have a significant impact on daily life, including employment. Obsessive compulsive disorder can take many forms, interfering with daily activities. In some cases, an individual may qualify for disability benefits. These cover financial needs, including medical treatment. The application is complex and a legal professional like the Law Office of Sheryl Mazur can be of assistance.

Basics of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Obsessive compulsive disorder is not well-understood, but is believed to be related to brain circuits. It is often related to a specific fear or phobia. The repetitive actions are a coping mechanism to alleviate this fear. Examples include compulsive cleaning to prevent germs or counting objects to provide a sense of control.

Other mental health conditions are related to obsessive compulsive disorder. They may include:

  • Tourette syndrome, which involves multiple repetitive ticks
  • Schizophrenia, which is affects thought processes and behavior
  • Anxiety and depression

Applying for Disability Benefits

Disability benefits are available for those who are affected by obsessive compulsive disorder and other mental health conditions. When this disability affects how a person functions at home and work, it can be hard to find and keep a job.

To apply for benefits, an individual must complete an application form. This will include detailed personal information about the health condition and work history. Medical records must demonstrate that the condition prohibits regular employment. Employment records can also show a history of work challenges, as well as highlight the areas where he or she has experienced issues.

Qualifying based on a mental condition can be more difficult than a physical one. It is important that a doctor supports the claim and provide thorough medical records. Getting regular mental health treatment is imperative. Working with an attorney can ensure that the application includes all the necessary documentation and details.
