Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Recovering Benefits for the Victims of PTSD
After a traumatic or extremely stressful event, especially after a military
campaign, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can be instantly triggered,
or spring up later in life. Beyond depression or going into prolonged
shock, post-traumatic stress disorder is acute anxiety that can adversely
affect your whole life, your daily routine, every relationship, and job
If you are a veteran facing these issues, then you should receive the benefits
you deserve. Post-traumatic stress disorder can cause further problems
in any and every area of life.
Some of these complicating issues include:
- Anger Management Issues
- Bipolar Disorder
- Chemical Dependency
- Exaggerated Startle Response
- Social Withdrawal
- Substance Abuse
If you or a loved one is suffering from PTSD, then there are ways to qualify
with both the VA and Social Security to receive benefits to help you through
this time. At The Zendeh Del Law Firm, PLLC, you can find a lawyer who
is ready to relentlessly pursue your rights, even if a
VA appeal is necessary.
Obtaining Benefits from the VA
The VA updated its rules for VA disability benefits, making it easier to
qualify. At The Zendeh Del Law Firm, PLLC, attorneys are thoroughly acquainted
with every facet of the law and how to find a way to get your claim accepted.
Post-traumatic stress disorder can qualify you for VA benefits if:
- You were diagnosed with this condition
- PTSD was triggered by a "stressor" / traumatic event
- A psychiatrist or psychologist can verify the stressor was sufficient to
- This stressor stems from fear of terrorist or military combat
- The stressor probably occurred during the place and events of your military service
Veterans' Benefits from Social Security
If you are unable to work due to PTSD, then you can also apply for Social
Security disability (SSD). To qualify for SSD, you must be able to demonstrate
recurring nightmares, flashbacks, and memories that cause acute anxiety
or emotional torment that directly impacts your lifestyle, relationships,
and/or capacity to focus. The onset of panic attacks, OCD, phobias, or
other issues can also qualify you for SSD benefits. To obtain these benefits,
you need records of mental health that state any impairment that stems
from PTSD, as well as thorough medical records.
Even if your disability due to PTSD is not deemed sufficient for SSD benefits,
you can still have your claim accepted through a medical-vocational allowance.
If PTSD affects your ability to adapt or it impairs your memory, understanding,
social interactions, and ability to focus long enough for work, then you
can qualify for SSD through this process. A qualified
veterans' benefits lawyer from our firm can help you determine the benefits for which you qualify.
