A mental disability rating indicative of severe impairment can have a negative impact for certain professional licensing requirements as well as firearms rights; it can also be persuasive in legal actions including guardianship. Get a consult w/ a local attorney so you can know more.
The Social Security proceedings are not public information so I cannot see why if you are found disabled due to mental incapacity it will hurt you later if you get better.
This response is meant to be information only and should not be considered to be legal advice. This information is not meant and should not be construed to be the formation of an attorney client relationship. I practice Virginia Workers compensation law and Social Security Disability law.
