Can I Get SSD Benefits Because I Have Schizophrenia?


Can I get Social Security Disability because
I have schizophrenia? The answer is you might be able to get Social Security Disability
because you have been diagnosed with schizophrenia. The diagnosis alone is not enough to entitle
you to Social Security Disability benefits. You have to be under the treatment with a
medical specialist, a psychiatrist and hopefully also a psychologist or a therapist. You have
to have a condition that is not well controlled by medication. That means that even though
you are following all the directions that your doctor gives you and taking your medicine
the way you are supposed to, and keeping all of your appointments, that your condition
is not controlled and is preventing you from working for at least a year.
