Mental Disability

Like with a physical disability, a mental disability can be considered for benefits if the mental illness interferes with an individual’s daily function and function in the work place.  A mental disability can not only affect someone’s ability to hold down a job, but a mental disability can also affect their ability to attend school and even complete daily tasks.
