What Kinds of Conditions Qualify for SSD Benefits?

The Social Security Administration (SSA) publishes a list of impairments that, once they become serious enough, automatically qualify a person for disability. A few examples include Parkinson's disease, epilepsy, diabetes, HIV/AIDS, lung disease and many other illnesses.

If your condition is not listed, do not lose hope. There are a number of other conditions that are unlisted yet may qualify you for Social Security Disability benefits. Conditions that may or may not fit into a listing include:

  • Depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder
  • Back injury/neck injury
  • Joint pain/arthritis/orthopedic injuries
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Chronic obstructive lung disease/asthma
  • Rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and Lyme disease
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)/Crohn's disease
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

This list gives just a few examples of possibly disabling medical conditions. Any impairment, no matter how rare, can qualify if it is so serious that you cannot support yourself through work. However, many of these conditions are difficult for doctors and psychiatrists to identify and diagnose. Our Livingston SSD attorneys understand what it takes to prove a disability claim, including documenting symptoms and the limitations placed on you by your condition.

Whether you are seeking help with your initial application or your claim has been denied and you need to file an appeal with the SSA, you can rely on our legal team to guide you, from beginning to end.
