Section 12 of the Blue Book deals with mental disorders, detailing which types of mental disorders can qualify you for benefits, and under what circumstances. There are nine categories of mental disorders covered in the Blue Book. SSA Blue Book Listings. With such a wide variation of disorders and conditions, the Social Security Administration created a guide for their own representatives and other physicians to determine if an applicant potentially qualifies for disability benefits.

        It seems that Americans are in the midst of a raging epidemic of mental illness, at least as judged by the increase in the numbers treated for it. The tally of those who are so disabled by mental disorders that they qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) increased nearly two and a half. On Monday, Septem Social Security will publish a final rule to update the criteria we use to evaluate disability claims involving mental disorders. This rule, “Revised Medical Criteria for Evaluating Mental Disorders,” is the most comprehensive revision to the criteria since

Social Security reviews of the mentally disabled: hearings before the Special Committee on Aging, United States Senate, Ninety-eighth Congress, first session. I recently purchased the latest edition of Thomas E. Bush, Social Security Practice, published DecemberI have practiced for 15+ years in the area of Social Security Disability, Workers' Compensation and Personal Injury, and I find this book and the digital materials essential.5/5(11).

The Social Security Administration (SSA) uses the Blue Book to determine whether someone has a disability that prevents them from working.

At step three of the five-part disability evaluation process, the SSA reviews an applicant's medical records to decide whether his or her medical condition (called an “impairment”) meets the requirements of a disability listing found in the Blue Book.

Art: Robin Mead. Every so often, Social Security will contact you to conduct a review. There are three kinds of reviews you may get: Disability Update Report – This is a quick, short form they send to some people.

They use this form to decide if they want to send you a full medical review or if they want to skip your review (most of the time they skip it!).

Answer: Social Security periodically reviews the condition of all Social Security disability recipients to confirm they still fit the definition of disabled – that is, that they are still unable to work.

These reviews are called continuing disability reviews. So the letter you received is just routine. If you're applying for Social Security disability based on a mental, psychological, or emotional condition, the Social Security Administration (SSA) will often schedule you for an independent evaluation with a psychologist or other mental health professional.

Social Security representatives in the field offices usually obtain applications for disability benefits in person, by telephone, by mail, or by filing online. The application and related forms ask for a description of the claimant’s impairment (s), treatment sources, and other information that relates to the alleged disability.

Ten Key Facts You Need to Know About Continuing Disability Reviews. If you obtain Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits, at some point you may receive a letter and questionnaire from the Social Security Administration (SSA) telling you it is reviewing your medical condition.

Be Prepared for Periodic Continuing Disability Reviews. Whether you receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, or both, you should be prepared for periodic continuing disability reviews.

The Social Security Administration (SSA) is required by law to perform regular reviews of disability recipients to see if they continue to be eligible for disability. The Social Security Administration (SSA) does not assume that you will be permanently disabled when you are granted Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) disability benefits.

Many of the conditions that prevent Social Security recipients from working can be expected to improve with time.

Social Security offers two programs for those seeking benefits in conjunction with their mental and physical disabilities.

Social Security Disability Insurance is for people who have worked and paid into the system through payroll deductions, and who have developed a disability expected to last one year or more or until they die.

The short form is generally for those whose condition is not expected to. The Social Security and Supplemental Security Income disability programs are the largest of several Federal programs that provide assistance to people with disabilities.

In order to qualify for social security benefits due to a mental illness you must be diagnosed with a condition that is listed in the SSA’s book of recognized disabilities.
