    Most people with PTSD have difficulty with anxiety, depression, impaired sleep, fears, and often agoraphobia, etc., and so this does impact on one's ability to work.

    SSi benefits continued

    So if this impairs ones ability to work, do you know a lot of people who are receiving disability for these disorders (OCD, ADD, PTSD, etc.) because they simply put, can't hold on to a job?

    thanks,

    Some are, yes. Each person is evaluated individually to determine ability to work. As has been noted before, your best bet is to talk to your doctor or therapist about determining your capacities and documenting that for a disability application.

    Hey miss clean,

    I have been diagnosed with PTSD and Major Depression and have received medical insurance.

    I had just started working with a new company and had only been there for a little over 6 months when I went on short term leave. The company and their insurance company were excellent about it and I was able to receive Short Term Medical Leave (67% of my salary) for 5 months. However, because I had been with the company for less than a year and had experienced symptoms during my probationary period (first 3 months of employment), I could not switch over to Long Term Leave due to their "Pre-existing Illness" clause. This was terrifying because I was NOT ready to go back to work, but had no income and wasn't in any shape to be co-coordinating any. Luckily, I had paid enough into Employment Insurance and was able to receive Medical E.I. benefits for 12 weeks. Those weeks ended and I eventually (when ready to go back to work - which was the middle of August) was eligible for regular E.I. I am not going back to doing what I was doing before - it is too much for me to handle.

    I felt very scared about not being capable of thinking or caring properly for my son - let alone generating enough money to take care of our basic needs. But as soon as I began making a few calls, I learned that there were options (I even called Social Services to find out if I was eligible for that). None were as financially lucrative as working, but at least they paid for my rent and food while I got better :)

    Hope this helps.
