Both physical medical problems and mental medical problems can be classified as causing a disability in order to receive Social Security disability benefits. The Social Security Administration has a manual of disorders that can be classified as disabilities under certain conditions called the Listing of Impairments.
Each of these categories has multiple specific types of disorders listed under it and how severe the condition must be to constitute a disorder.
You do not have to be completely incapacitated to get Social Security disability payments, but you do have to have a disability that renders you unable to work for at least one year. The disorder also must be established by a trained physician, not just by the individual’s statements.
