DISABILITY BENEFITS AND PTSD

If you’ve been diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and your doctor says you can no longer work even as you are struggling to hold down a job, there is a strong possibility that you may be eligible for benefits. We represent many applicants, including members of the military who have returned from Iraq or Afghanistan. You may be approved for SSD benefits if your medical record meets certain requirements set up by the Social Security Administration. You may also be able to have your SSD or SSI disability claim approved through a medical vocational allowance if a disability adjudicator finds that your condition is severe. This may be the case if you cannot return to your past work or are forced to switch to another line of work.

PTSD symptoms usually begin within three months of a traumatic event. Sometimes, however, reaction can be delayed, sometimes for years. Symptoms can come and go and are often more likely to occur during times of stress in your life, or if something happens in your daily life to trigger a memory of the traumatic event. To schedule a free initial consultation, please call the Law Offices of Silverman & Roedel at 973-772-6411. Our office is located at 1187 Main Ave., Suite 2C. Se habla Español.
