Who can collect Social Security Disability benefits?
The Social Security Administration (SSA) has a strict set of guidelines to determine eligibility for SSDI benefits. To qualify, you must:
- Have been diagnosed by a doctor with a medical condition that will last for at least one year/is terminal and prevents you from working.
- Have a medical condition from the SSA’s list of impairments.
- Have a work history that includes jobs which are covered by Social Security Disability.
- Be younger than the age at which you qualify for retirement benefits from the SSA.
If your illness or injury is not on the SSA’s list, you will have to undergo a Residual Functional Capacity (RFC) assessment, which evaluates your job ability. All applicants will need to undergo a Medical Vocational Analysis to determine whether they can work in any capacity.
What illnesses and injuries are included on the SSA list of impairments?
The SSA list of impairments for adults includes a wide array of conditions in the following categories:
- Musculoskeletal Disorders
- Special Senses and Speech
- Respiratory Disorders
- Cardiovascular System
- Digestive System
- Genitourinary Disorders
- Hematological Disorders
- Skin Disorders
- Endocrine Disorders
- Congenital Disorders that Affect Multiple Body Systems
- Neurological Disorders
- Mental Disorders
- Cancer (Malignant Neoplastic Diseases)
- Immune System Disorders
If your injury or illness is not on the list, that does not automatically disqualify you for benefits. Let our York, PA Social Security Disability lawyers help you prepare your claim. Note that the SSA makes certain exceptions for people who are blind or have low vision, for children with disabilities, and for widows/widowers of qualifying workers.
