The first step towards understanding your condition is realizing that feeling panicky most of the time is not normal, especially if it is keeping you from engaging in life’s activities. Seek medical help if this is the case. Your doctor can evaluate certain physical conditions (such as blood sugar levels and hormone levels) and non-physical conditions to determine if you have a mental disorder related to anxiety. Your diagnosis will help you seek institutional support from medical and non-medical sources.
The Social Security Administration (SSA) recognizes anxiety conditions/disorders and provides help for anxiety patients through their Social Security Disability (SSD) Insurance program. To qualify for SSD benefits you must be diagnosed with chronic anxiety that makes you unable to work. Besides evaluating your medical records, SSA will review your case in depth using their own set of medical experts too. These medical experts essentially compare your symptoms and their outcomes to a list of qualifying conditions/symptoms/outcomes, which need to be present for you to be eligible. In some instances, SSDI applicants will be called to appear before a judge in a federal court. The judge may ask questions about your disorder and may also require you to undergo a medical evaluation in order to substantiate your claim.
It is very common for SSD benefits applications to be denied to deserving applicants due to lack of information and/or inability to file the application properly. Therefore it is highly advised that the applicant hires an experienced Social Security/mental disorder attorney in Oklahoma who can gather the required evidence to prove eligibility. Because the SSA can be so difficult to deal with, we believe in the importance of retaining a disability benefits attorney from AMA Law to establish correct paperwork and trustworthy legal representation.
