Can I get Social Security Disability based on Bipolar Disorder? Yes you can. You need to document that you do have a severe case of Bipolar Disorder. Many times Bipolar Disorder can be controlled for extended periods of time by medication. However, there are many people whose condition cannot be controlled by medication or can only be controlled for a limited period of time and if your condition is so severe that you have so many symptoms in spite of the fact that you’re going to the psychiatrist, and you’re going to the psychologist or the therapist and you’re taking the medication the way you’re supposed to and your condition is still not very well controlled and will keep you from working because of your symptoms, then you may be able to get Social Security Disability benefits.
