If you have a medical condition which prevents you from working, you may qualify for Social Security benefits. There is a long list of qualifying conditions with unique requirements for each condition, so determining whether your condition entitles you to Social Security benefits can be a challenge in itself. Drew L. Johnson, P.C. Attorneys at Law can help you understand whether your condition qualifies and will work with you to put together a successful application for benefits.
Determining whether or not your physical medical condition could qualify you for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance can only be done on a case-by-case basis. However, you may be able to get an idea by looking at some of the conditions which the Social Security Administration lists: respiratory illnesses like asthma, neurological disorders, immune system disorders, genetic syndromes, skin disorders, cardiovascular problems, musculoskeletal issues, cancer, blood and bone marrow disorders, digestive problems, and more. If your condition prevents you from being able to work, there’s a good chance that you may qualify for Social Security benefits.
