What are Eligible Social Security Disability Injuries?

by DISABILITY PROFESSIONALS on November 6, 2012

If you think you may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits, you’ll need to have a qualifying injury. The Social Security Administration has strict definitions of what constitutes a disability. According to the Social Security Administration, to receive a disability benefit, you must prove the following:

  • You cannot work because of your medical condition
  • The condition has lasted, or is expected to last, at least 1 year, or to result in your death.

The SSA determines the overall ability of the claimant to work. The SSA uses a specific set of regulations and listings describing certain conditions or diseases.  These include:

  • Musculoskeletal disorders
  • Growth impairments
  • Vision disorders
  • Balance and hearing disorders
  • Speech disorders
  • Breathing disorders
  • Heart and blood vessel diseases
  • Digestive system diseases
  • Kidney diseases
  • Blood and lymphatic diseases

If you think your condition fits the criteria for Social Security Disability Benefits, the people at Disability Professionals can help. Give Disability Professionals a call at 855-201-9569 or email DisabilityProfessionals to set up your appointment today.
