Personality Disorders And Social Security Disability

Personality is a term used to collectively define the characteristics that set one individual apart from another. A personality disorder, then, is a condition that arises when one's personality places him or her at odds with societal norms and expectations. It is not uncommon for a personality disorder to prevent an individual from maintaining gainful employment.

The Social Security Administration (SSA) recognizes personality disorders as conditions that qualify individuals for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. In either North Carolina or South Carolina, we encourage you to schedule a free consultation to discuss your unique situation. Daisley Law Offices, P.C., is well-equipped to provide the representation you need.

Receiving Social Security Disability Benefits Due To Personality Disorder

Personality disorders are typically categorized based on the main symptoms. Common disorders include:

  • Obsessive-compulsive personality disorder
  • Antisocial personality disorder
  • Borderline personality disorder
  • Narcissistic personality disorder
  • Schizoaffective disorder
  • Passive-aggressive personality disorder

Personality disorders can be disruptive and make it difficult to cope with certain demands in the workplace.
