Q. Can I be disabled under SS guidelines if the only problems I have are psychological in nature?

A. Yes. SS law requires a consideration of mental as well as physical factors in deciding disability. The key to establishing disability is the proof that the disability condition continue at least twelve (12) months or more. Mental ailments that have or are expected to last more than twelve (12) months qualify for disability if the condition is supported by mental health professionals. Disability does not have to be permanent for mental or physical conditions.
