Common Social Security Disability Conditions

Common Social Security Disability Conditions

The Financial Security You Need to Keep Going

You can have many different health problems—or a combination of health problems—and qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits.

But it’s easy to get overwhelmed by all the rules and lists of Social Security disability conditions from the Social Security Administration (SSA).

When medical conditions make it impossible for you to work and keep earning a paycheck, you’re dealing with too much stress already.

Every case is different. Sorting through all the Social Security disability conditions just adds more stress.

Go easy on yourself. Let Merryl Jones – Second Chance Lawyer figure out whether you have a disability case.

We’ll even evaluate your case for free.

Social Security Disability Conditions that Qualify for Benefits

One of the most important things to know: the SSA will look at whether your health makes it impossible for you to work, regardless of which conditions you have.

So you’ll need to show Social Security that the severity of your medical conditions and disability make you eligible for financial help. Your health problems have to be serious enough that they’re expected to keep you from work for at least a year. You’ll have to prove you can’t switch to another line of work, either.

In our law office, we’ve seen people with many Social Security disability conditions. Merryl Jones – Second Chance Lawyer has successfully represented people applying for Social Security disability benefits with all of these conditions and more:

  • Congestive Heart Failure
  • Diabetes

  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia

  • Chronic Headaches
  • Musculoskeletal Disorder
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Bi-Polar Disorder
  • Asthma
  • Emphysema
  • Huntington’s Disease

Even if your illness isn’t on that list, your ailment could still qualify as a Social Security disability condition.

What to Do if You Think You Qualify for Social Security Disability

Qualifying Social Security Disability Conditions & SSDI or SSI

The main difference between Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is your work history and financial situation, not the type of disease you have.

The SSA uses the same list of Social Security disability conditions for adults applying to either program.

  • The SSDI program covers you if you have substantial recent work history and have paid into the Social Security system out of your paychecks.
  • SSI could provide benefits if you have not paid significant amounts into the Social Security system through work and have limited income and resources.

Another difference with SSI is that it provides benefits to help support children with disabilities if their families meet the financial requirements.
