How To Know If You Qualify For Disability Benefits

Qualifying for Social Security disability benefits is actually fairly simple.

Basically, you qualify for Social Security disability benefits for any medical condition (or conditions) that...

1. Can be considered severe,

2. Prevents you from being able to work and make a living, and

3. Has lasted twelve months or more, or is expected to last twelve months or more.

So if your physical or mental condition prevents you from being able to work, you should apply for Social Security disability benefits.

What are some of the conditions that may qualify you for disability benefits?

How To Qualify For DisabilityThe Social Security Administration has a "Listing of Medical Impairments" that automatically qualify you for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI), provided certain conditions are met.

If your medical condition is on the Listing of Impairments, then you are generally eligible to get Social Security disability benefits.

If your medical condition is not on the list, it does NOT mean you can't get disability benefits. You may still qualify to get benefits under other SSA guidelines.

Some of the most common disability conditions are arthritis (such as rheumatoid and osteoarthritis arthritis), fibromyalgia, heart problems, back problems, high blood pressure, diabetes, lupus, irritable bowel syndrome, crohn's disease, coronary artery disease, eye problems, hearing problems, epilepsy and asthma.

Other conditions also include mental impairments (psychological and psychiatric) such as bipolar disorder, major depression, schizophrenia, low IQ, personality disorder, anxiety disorder, panic attacks and autism.
