Common Social Security Disability Conditions

If you’re considering filing a Social Security Disability (SSD) claim, you may be wondering what are some of the most common social security disability conditions or impairments that qualify for benefits. Under Social Security law, any “medically determinable impairment” which makes it impossible for you to work for at least 12 months can qualify for disability benefits.

This is a wide-ranging definition that leaves a lot of room for interpretation, which is why many of these common social security disability conditions have eligibility requirements that must be met in order for benefits to be paid.

If you are seeking to obtain benefits under the Social Security Disability laws or have been denied benefits under the law, it can help to have an experienced Social Security disability attorney review your case and represent you to the SSA. At Second Chance Lawyer we specialize in helping our clients whose claims have previously been denied obtain the benefits to which they are entitled.
