Disability claims may be used for these medical conditions

You may be able to seek Social Security Disability payments in Minnesota if you have certain medical conditions. While the following list is not exhaustive, it should give you a good idea of how this works by providing examples of some of the top conditions that are cited every year.

First, you could apply if you have a blood disorder. This could include both hemophilia and sickle cell disease.

You may also be eligible if you suffer from a neurological issue. These can take on many forms and may impact different people in different ways. However, common issues are epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and cerebral palsy. While some develop and change over time, others can start at birth, as is often the case with cerebral palsy.

On top of that, you may qualify if you're suffering from other mental disorders that impact your daily life, such as clinical depression and anxiety; these are more severe than simply stress or situational depression, and they often require medication. Other mental issues include autism, schizophrenia, or similar intellectual disabilities.

Finally, respiratory issues are often cited, as they can make it difficult and even dangerous to work. These could include cystic fibrosis or asthma. These can also grow worse over time, perhaps preventing you from working in a career that you have enjoyed for years.

As noted, this is not a full list of all qualifying disorders, but it merely illustrates a few of the most common. If you believe that you may qualify for disability, be sure that you know exactly what to do to put in your claim. Getting everything exactly right is very important.
