Bipolar Disorder May Qualify for Disability Benefits
People often think that Social Security Disability benefits may only be for those with medical conditions or physical handicaps. This is not actually true. The Social Security Administration, the government agency that processes SSDI applications, allows benefits for people struggling with certain mental disorders. Mental disorders can be just as devastating, or sometimes more so, than other medical conditions. Bipolar Disorder is one such disabling medical condition that can qualify you or someone you know for SSDI benefits.
Bipolar Disorder is a mental disorder that can cause severe depression, sudden mood swings, unusual energy or activity levels, or suicidal thoughts or behavior, among other symptoms.
Also known as manic-depressive illness, Bipolar Disorder can have a strong impact on your day-to-day life, and can impact your ability to work or function. While it can be treated, Bipolar Disorder can still seriously affect whether or not you can work.
People with Bipolar Disorder can apply for Social Security Disability benefits, and may receive those benefits if they can meet the SSA’s criteria for having this disorder. Also, those suffering from Bipolar Disorder may be able to show that they cannot work due to their Bipolar Disorder, even with treatment.
