When is anxiety considered disabling?

We all get nervous and anxious sometimes. Whether you are about to travel out of the country, make a speech, have to complete a large project or about to get married, we all experience a moment when our heart races and our mind cannot focus on anything other than being anxious. While these moments come and go and are relatively minor events, some individuals in Anaheim and other cities across the nation suffer from constant anxiety. This can be a difficult situation to deal with, as this is a mental condition that can be debilitating and can cause some people to fear leaving their home.

Gather this information to apply for social security disability

If you live in Anaheim and you have a physical or mental condition that limits your ability to work, you might be able to file for social security disability. In general, there are two conditions that might make you eligible for social security disability. The first one is that your condition has lasted for at least 12 months. The other possible requirement is that your condition is life-threatening and will more than likely end in death.

An overview of SSD benefits

Where previously the aim of the Social Security program was to reduce poverty among seniors, it has broadened over time to protect against the risk of losing income from work, whether that income is lost due to retirement, disability or the "breadwinner's" death. At the end of 2016, 61 million people across the country were receiving Social Security benefits, of which 68 percent were retired and 18 percent were survivors or children of workers who had earned benefits, and 14 percent were disabled workers.

Can children receive SSI benefits?

California residents may not be aware that the Social Security Administration provides financial assistance to children who are disabled, as per the SSA's rules. The SSA provides cash assistance to qualifying children and the child could also be eligible to receive assistance from other federal programs as well.

Choose wisely when considering help with SSD claims

As mentioned in a previous post here, depending on a person's individual circumstances, the Social Security Administration periodically reviews the status of applicants to ensure that they should continue to receive SSD benefits. The process can be daunting as it approaches, as many may fear that they could lose the financial assistance they have come to rely on, but the reality is that they are rarely revoked. However, it is always beneficial to have someone explaining the process by one's side, but it is important to know who to rely on for guidance.
