4 Ways Mental Illness is Assessed in a New York Social Security Disability Case
Frank J. Dito, Jr.
If you have been diagnosed with a mental disorder you may qualify for Social Security disability benefits. You should immediately consult with a Brooklyn Social Security disability lawyer who can help determine your eligibility.
There are 4 ways a mental disorder is assessed in a New York Social Security disability case:
- Activities of daily living - whether you are able to competently handle activities such as shopping, cleaning, personal grooming and hygiene.
- Social functioning - the ability to appropriately and effectively interact with family, friends, neighbors and others with whom you come into contact.
- Concentration, pace or persistence - do you have the ability to sustain focused concentration and attention for work-related tasks.
- Episodes of decomposition - in other words, the inability to maintain defense mechanisms in response to stress which then require increased treatment or removal from the situation.
