The Social Security Administration considers several factors when determining if a person with Bipolar Disorder is disabled. If you are under the care of a psychiatrist and are experiencing the following symptoms you may be eligible for Social Security Disability Benefits:
Depressive Syndrome: You may have symptoms such as a loss of interest in all activities, loss of appetite, sleep disturbances, psychomotor agitation, decreased energy, feelings of guilt or worthlessness, difficulty concentrating, thoughts of suicide, hallucinations, delusions, and paranoid thinking.
Manic Syndrome: You may have symptoms such as hyperactivity, pressure of speech, flight of ideas, inflated self-esteem, decreased need for sleep, easy distractibility, hallucinations, delusions, and paranoid thinking.
If your bipolar disorder is limiting or preventing your ability to function at work and at home and you are experiencing recurring episodes of depression and mania you may be eligible for Social Security Disability Benefits.
