MENTAL DISORDERS, BACK ISSUES
I finished my process and never received a response
It generally takes between 3-5 months to hear back from the SSA regarding your claim. If you don't hear by then, I would recommend speaking with a SSA rep.
are mental disorder benefits different than work credit
You can receive a disability benefit known as Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) if you are experiencing a mental disorder. To qualify for SSDI you would need to meet the medical requirements for that disorder. You will also have have obtained enough work credits for SSDI. Work credits are earned as you work and pay money into Social Security taxes. I hope that helped clean things up!
