Do people with cognitive impairments qualify for Social Security?

Memory and cognitive impairments can affect a person's mental health including their behaviors such as how they feel, think or act. A person suffering from a condition such as this may experience shifts in their ability to remember things from one moment to the next.

If you're struggling with one of these conditions, then you may be entitled to receive Social Security Disability (SSD) to help you support yourself.

Schizophrenia is a devastating mental illness. While it can occur in teens, many people aren't diagnosed with the disorder until they're in their 20s or 30s.

Pursuing a Social Security disability claim for mental health

The U.S. federal government created the Social Security program to support some of our nation's most vulnerable people -- the ones who are disabled and unable to earn an income for themselves.
