Can I get disability for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)?

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) may qualify you for disability benefits. PTSD is classified by the Social Security Administration as an anxiety-related disorder.

PTSD is a disorder that can develop after exposure to a traumatic or terrifying event. A person who suffers from PTSD usually experiences great anxiety, stress and fear of harm, even though he or she may no longer be in any danger. This anxiety may become so severe that the victim is not able to maintain employment. In addition to employment, PTSD may also severely interfere with personal relationships and other aspects of a person's life.

If you suffer from PTSD that prevents or interferes with your ability to work, please contact our Jackson MS disability attorneys for a free consultation.
