You can access Social Security Income with these conditions

There are many medical conditions that qualify you for disability. The Social Security Administration maintains a book of medical impairments that automatically qualify you for Social Security Disability Insurance. The book also identifies disabilities that would qualify you immediately for Supplemental Security Income.

If your medical condition is on the list of impairments or is equivalent to a medical condition on the list of impairments, you are considered disabled and can receive SSI disability benefits. Even if your condition is not on this list, you may be entitled to some compensation through the SSA guidelines.

There are several types of conditions that are accepted under the list of impairments. For example, musculoskeletal problems are included on the list. Blood disorders, like hemophilia, and mental disorders such as anxiety or post-traumatic stress disorder are included on the list, too.

You can also receive Social Security Disability Income if you have an immune system disorder such as lupus or rheumatoid arthritis. These are not all of the conditions on the list, and many other conditions can qualify you for benefits. These conditions only apply to those who are 18 years of age or older. Children must meet requirements on a different list that is virtually identical except for growth impairment, which is included for those under 18.

If your condition isn't on the list, you could still qualify for disability payments. A doctor or specialist can provide evidence of your disability to the Social Security Administration. Your doctor should submit evidence in the form of medical records to the administration.

You will need to show several kinds of medical evidence including your mental health records, blood work panels, notes about your treatment and other medical information. It is best for this medical evidence to be current when you are submitting it for the first time, and the Social Security Administration will ask for updates as needed. If your case is denied, your attorney can help you go through it and provide the administration with the information it needs to get you approved.
