Personality Disorders and Social Security DisabilityPersonality Disorders and Social Security Disability Benefits

Personality Disorder is a general term describing self-destructive behavior or a pattern of responding to situations in a self-denigrating way. Many people who have a personality disorder may not even realize it because their behavior seems normal, and they may even find fault in others for their situations. There are many different types of personality disorder including borderline personality disorder, histrionic personality disorder, and antisocial personality disorder. Some general symptoms of a personality disorder include:

  • Disregard for others
  • Frequent mood swings
  • Alcohol or substance abuse
  • Social anxiety

The cause of personality disorders is not definitively known. It is most likely a combination of inherited personality traits and environmental factors. People who suffer from personality disorders have trouble forming relationships and functioning in day-to-day life. People with personality disorders tend to respond inappropriately to problems and stresses make it difficult to function in a job environment. For this reason, personality disorders may be covered under Social Security Disability Insurance benefits.

Social Security Disability Insurance benefits are intended to supply monetary aid to those who cannot work due to a disability. Personality disorders aren't a physical disability, but they can interfere with performing the basis functions of a job.
