    Here’s How You Qualify for Benefits

    One of the first questions you probably have when you’re thinking about getting your Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits is, “Do I have a strong case?”

    When your life is thrown into uncertainty because health problems forced you out of work—and you’re worried about bills, food, and even keeping a roof over your head—the answer is more important than anything.

    Monthly checks from SSDcould be a lifeline for you in hard times.

    You must meet the following basic disability qualifiers to get benefits:

    • You have severe health impairments.
    • Your impairments rule out working much at all.
    • Your medical condition and inability to work are certain to last at least a year, if they haven’t already.

    Seems simple enough. But to meet this strict disability definition, you must prove every point. Social Security denies an overwhelming number of people who apply for disability benefits.

    One of the best ways to deal with this is to work with a disability lawyer who knows the process up and down.

    As a man sits on an exam table, a doctor presses on his back. Multiple kinds of impairments can qualify for disability benefits.

    How You Qualify for Disability Benefits with Different Impairments

    Another question you might have is whether your particular disease or condition is something Social Security would award disability benefits for.

    Officially, Social Security keeps a list of dozens of illnesses that can qualify you for benefits, and it goes into detail on what you need to prove for each one.

    You may have a condition on the listing of impairments. But even if you have something else, you can document for Social Security how your particular symptoms limit your ability to function every day.

    The following are some of the most common conditions among people who get disability benefits, but they’re far from the only ones:

    • Anxiety
    • Autoimmune diseases
    • Back problems
    • Bipolar disorder
    • Cancer
    • Depression
    • Diabetes
    • Heart disease
    • Lung diseases
    • Mental trauma disorders
