You may obtain Social Security Disability with an illness

If you're struggling with an illness or disability, you may be able to qualify for Social Security Disability (SSD). There are dozens of conditions that qualify individuals for this benefit. The illnesses and disabilities are listed out by the Social Security Administration (SSA). If a medical condition isn't on the list, that doesn't mean someone can't get benefits, but it may make it more difficult to do so.

The medically approved list of impairments includes may illnesses and disabilities including back problems and dysfunctions of the bones or joints. Cardiovascular conditions, like heart disease or heart failure also qualify an individual for disability. Other kinds of illnesses or disabilities that could qualify you for disability payments include speech issues, blindness, mental disorders, blood disorders, neurological conditions, inflammatory bowel disease and immune system disorders. Even chronic illnesses such as asthma or cystic fibrosis may help someone qualify for disability benefits if the illness is severe enough.

If your illness isn't listed, don't think you're immediately cut off from benefits. You may be able to qualify for Social Security Disability by showing that you have a medically determinable impairment. Essentially, if a medical provider can vouch for you that your impairment is significant enough that you cannot work, you may be able to obtain benefits. Your condition must be one that has had testing in laboratories or clinical testing in the past.

Our website has more information about obtaining SSD, SSI and other benefits you may be entitled to after suffering from a debilitating injury or illness. With help, you can get approved for the benefits you need.
