Qualifying Ailments

The SSA has a Listing of Impairments they consider disabling conditions. These conditions can include, but are not limited to:

  • anxiety disorders,
  • arthritis and joint damage,
  • asthma,
  • back injuries,
  • blindness or deafness,
  • breathing problems,
  • cancer,
  • chronic heart disease,
  • extreme psoriasis involving hands and feet,
  • HIV,
  • immune system disorders,
  • lupus,
  • mental disorders,
  • multiple sclerosis,
  • neurological disorders,
  • obesity,
  • rheumatoid arthritis,
  • seizures despite the use of medication,
  • and other severe medical conditions.

If you suffer from one of these conditions, or your condition no longer allows you to work, speak with our Social Security Disability lawyers today. We can help you determine whether or not your condition may be considered disabling by the SSA.

The Compassionate Allowances Initiative

The SSA’s Compassionate Allowances initiative allows SSD applicants with severe medical conditions to receive expedited claims processing. In many cases, this can mean people who qualify for the program can begin receiving benefits in weeks rather than in months or years.

To find out if your condition qualifies you for expedited processing, visit the SSA’s List of Compassionate Allowances Conditions, or contact us to speak with our experienced SSD attorneys.
