Abstract

The authors describe the basic legal and medical requirements for psychiatric disability benefits under social security law and regulations. They outline procedures used in assessment of impairment, stressing the need for factual observations. The active interest of the psychiatric profession, the authors feel, will contribute to the scientific basis on which further refinement in the quantification of impairment criteria can be built.
