Remember, this is only a list of common mental disorders the Social Security Administration has predetermined severe enough to receive Social Security Disability Insurance benefits. If you do not fall into one of these categories, but still feel your condition is disabling, call Freedom Disability today at (800) 298-6885 for a free evaluation by one of our Advocates. Our Advocates will provide you with further information about each category’s specific criteria and help determine if your condition is likely to result in a successful SSDI application.

The foregoing information is based on published materials from the Social Security Administration (“Disability Evaluation Under Social Security”). It is meant to serve as an introduction to some of the factors used by the SSA in evaluating cases. It is no way comprehensive. While Freedom Disability can help you prepare an effective application for benefits, only the SSA can determine whether or not you qualify. For more information call Freedom today at (800) 298-6885.
