What diseases or body ailments can determine if you qualify for Social Security Disability benefits?

The Social Security Administration has a list of disabling conditions; however, being approved for disability benefits depends on how badly you are affected by the disease or impairment, and not just because your condition is on a list.

When determining your disability claim, the Social Security Administration will consider the severity of your claim and if it is expected to last for more than twelve months or result in death. They will also consider your inability to engage in substantial gainful activity, or work.

If you feel that your medical condition or impairment is so severe that you can no longer work, you may qualify for benefits. Our Social Security Disability lawyers can help with your application or file your appeal if you have already been denied.
