Does My Disability Qualify For Disability Benefits?

Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits are notoriously difficult to qualify for. Because of this, many people who are suffering from a disability do not take action to secure the disability benefits they deserve.

We understand what it takes to build a stronger case with the Social Security Administration (SSA) and will provide the caring and knowledgeable service you need.

Eligible Health Conditions

The SSA has a broad range of medical criteria that they consider when ultimately determining whether a specific illness or injury constitutes a disability. The medical conditions that the SSA specifically recognizes as a disability when receiving benefits include:

  • Musculoskeletal system problems: Spine disorders, serious broken bones and joint dysfunction
  • Special senses and speech issues: Vision loss, hearing loss and loss of speech
  • Respiratory disorders: Asthma, cystic fibrosis and bronchiectasis
  • Cardiovascular issues: Heart failure, peripheral arterial disease and major aneurysms
  • Neurological problems: Parkinson’s disease, cerebral palsy and multiple sclerosis

It is important to note that this is not an exhaustive list of eligible medical conditions. Our attorneys will take the time to learn about your situation and help you determine how much in disability benefits you may be entitled to receive.

Whether you are working on the initial application or are appealing denial, our attorneys will guide you every step of the way.
