Bellevue, WA asked in Civil Rights, Personal Injury and Social Security for Washington

Q: Looking for defined period disability for mental disability. I had a severe psychotic episode at work a week ago.

I'm about to be homeless and am not capable of holding a job. I have gone for psychiatric help in the past and received no help. I do not require medication. I've had several severe head injuries but have no record or proof of them.

A: You can make a claim but you have to show that you have had a medical disability that has prevented you from work for twelve months or longer. I'm not seeing that you have the medical proof of that.
