People who suffer from a schizophrenia disability may be able to qualify for social security benefits.
Schizophrenia is a serious mental illness that makes it difficult for sufferers to think logically. People with schizophrenia also have difficulty interacting with others socially and controlling their behaviors. This disability is due to having difficulty differentiating between reality and delusions.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with schizophrenia, you may be wondering about financial assistance. Is the person able to work? Some people respond well to medication and treatment and live relatively normal lives. Others with schizophrenia are unable to hold down a job. Does this mean they can qualify for social security disability with schizophrenia?
To better understand your options, it’s essential to speak with a disability claims advocate. At GAR Disability Advocates, we routinely help people who are unable to work due to various illnesses and conditions. In some cases of schizophrenia, SSI or SSDI benefits are indeed available.
