Thanks for sharing the basics of being rated of getting Social Security Disability for PTSD SFC (Join to see)
Getting Disability for PTSD, "Disability claims for PTSD, or post-traumatic stress disorder, can be approved by disability claims examiners in two separate ways. The first route for approval is for individuals whose medical records satisfy the requirements of Social Security's disability listing on anxiety-related disorders. The second means of approval is to get a "medical-vocational allowance." This may sound like it's an exception, but it's actually the manner in which the great majority of SSD and SSI disability claims are approved."
The most significant requirement seems to be providing sufficient Medical Evidence Required for PTSD. "There should be at least one detailed description of a typical episode of PTSD, including the frequency and duration of any panic attacks, and what brings on worsening symptoms. Your doctor should also include whether your description of your symptoms matches his opinion of your mental state. Most importantly, your medical record should include how your PTSD symptoms effect your ability to function, both at home and at work."
