Qualifying Ailments for SSD Benefits
Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits are intended to provide you with compensation if you become disabled and can no longer work. It sounds simple, but the Social Security Administration (SSA) has strict guidelines regarding who qualifies for benefits. At Michigan Injury Lawyers, our Michigan SSD attorneys can help determine if you’re eligible for benefits, and we can gather the medical evidence you need to build a strong claim.
If you’re suffering from a serious medical condition or illness, we can answer your questions about receiving SSD benefits. Contact our legal staff to get the legal help you deserve—just dial (888) 454-0801 or fill out a free initial consultation form.
The SSA has a Listing of Impairments that are considered disabling and qualify you to receive SSD benefits. These conditions can include, but are not limited to:
- seizures despite the use of medication,
- rheumatoid arthritis,
- neurological disorders,
- multiple sclerosis,
- mental disorders,
- immune system disorders,
- HIV positive,
- extreme psoriasis involving hands and feet,
- chronic heart disease,
- breathing problems,
- blindness or deafness,
- and other severe medical conditions.
If you suffer from one of these conditions or another disabling condition, you may be qualified for SSD benefits. You may also be able to automatically qualify for SSD benefits if you’re diagnosed with a severe medical condition on the SSA’s List of Compassionate Allowances Conditions. But in order to qualify, your illness or ailment must be expected to last at least 12 months or result in death.
