Is It Difficult To Get Long-Term Disability Benefits When You Have PTSD?

Long Term Disability - Question 37
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) falls into the broad category of conditions that are sometimes described as “invisible disabilities”.They are “invisible” because objective medical testing does not provide proof of the illness, symptoms or disabling condition. An X-ray, CT Scan, MRI or other medical testing generally will not provide any explanation for the symptoms you may be suffering with as part of the PTSD diagnosis. As claims for Long Term Disability are generally scrutinized extensively, being approved may well be difficult. If you have strong medical support and your claim is denied you should not hesitate to contact an experienced disability lawyer to assess your chances of proceeding with your claim and successfully getting the benefits you deserve.
