You deserve benefits if you have a mental health disability

Living with a disability is not only difficult; it is often devastating and frustrating. As someone living with an "invisible" illness, you know all-too-well how hard it is to try to do the things you're used to doing and not being able to do so. You may no longer be able to work, attend school or do the things you love.

Veterans with disabilities may be able to receive Social Security Disability payments for mental health disorders if they qualify under the Social Security Administration's (SSA) definition of disabled. The SSA keeps several lists of diseases and illnesses that qualify for benefits. If a condition is on the list, it's covered. Sometimes, conditions not listed but that are similar to conditions on the list are also covered.

The SSA's Disability Evaluation Section 12 covers mental disorders for adults. Some of the initial listings include neurocognitive disorders, depression and bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and impulse-control disorders. Obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety and autism-spectrum disorders are also covered.

Trauma- and stress-induced disorders are listed under Section 12.15. This section includes illnesses such as post-traumatic stress disorder, which can make it hard to work or live on your own. Even eating disorders are covered.

Qualifying for benefits is important if you're struggling. Having Social Security Disability benefits means you can focus less on bringing in an income and more on getting well or living a full life. When a disorder affects your life so severely that you can't work, it's important to have this support to guarantee a basic quality of life while you seek treatment. Our website has more on disability benefits and how they can help you.
