Symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
If you constantly relive a traumatic moment from your past or have terrible
memories that prevent you from working, you may have post-traumatic stress
disorder. This disorder can cause you to have substantial difficulty functioning
throughout the day.
Common causes of PTSD include:
- Death of a loved one
- Other severe trauma
Eligibility for Benefits
In Texas, specific guidelines are set by the Social Security Administration
to determine a person's eligibility for
Social Security disability benefits. Although there are millions of Americans who suffer the effects of PTSD,
only the most severe circumstances will qualify a person for disability benefits.
In order to be considered eligible for benefits, your PTSD symptoms must:
- Be life threatening
- Have lasted or be expected to last for at least one year
- Prevent you from working full time

Worth metro area to help them obtain the disability benefits that they

of information related to your PTSD condition.
Information that will be considered includes:
- When you were diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder
- How long you have been undergoing treatment
- Treatments and prescription medications you are taking
- Other medical conditions you have
- Your expected prognosis
