The list of disabilities which currently qualify for benefits under the Canadian Disability Tax Credit program is exceptionally wide ranging and includes both mental and physical disorders. Included among these disabilities is the life altering disorder which is gender identity disorder. While hormone treatments, psychotherapy and eventual surgery can allow a person to live a normal life as the gender they properly identify with, these treatments are very expensive. By helping you receive up $35,000 in benefits per claim, Canadian Disability Benefits can help you receive the treatment you need without adding financial problems to your existing difficulties.
What is Gender Identity Disorder?
Gender identity disorder is a formally recognized but widely controversial disorder in which a person a does not mentally identify with their physical gender. While these feelings may become overwhelming at any age, most people living with gender identity disorder eventually realize that they have felt uncomfortable in their body as long as they can remember. While recognized as a disability for the purpose of Canadian Disability Benefits, many transgender advocates actually support the declassification of gender identity disorder as they see the traditional binary version of gender as flawed.
Symptoms of Gender Identity Disorder
As a deep-seated mental disorder, gender identity disorder affects every aspect of a person’s life from the time they first start feeling the symptom until the day they die. If not recognized and treated with the help of Canadian Disability Benefits, many people living with gender identity disorder face significant stress, depression and other associated disabilities.
