“Does my condition qualify for Social Security Disability benefits?” It’s a fairly common question, and in many cases it’s a good one. The truth of the matter is there are so many different conditions that could potentially qualify for Social Security Disability benefits that determining whether or not a condition does qualify isn’t always straightforward just by looking at a list. The list is pretty substantial, but even conditions that are not on the list may still qualify you for benefits.

Listed Medical Conditions

The Social Security Disability listing manual includes the following conditions as of its update for 2018:

  • Musculoskeletal conditions
  • Cardiovascular conditions (heart failure or coronary artery disease)
  • Sense and speech issues (vision or hearing loss)
  • Respiratory illnesses or conditions (COPD or asthma)
  • Neurological disorders (Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, or cerebral palsy)
  • Mental disorders (depression, anxiety, or autism)
  • Immune system disorders (HIV, AIDS, or lupus)
  • Various syndromes
  • Skin disorders and conditions
  • Digestive system conditions
  • Certain cancers
  • Kidney issues
  • Hematological disorders (hemolytic anemias, bone marrow failure disorders)

Not On the List?

Just because your condition isn’t on the list doesn’t mean you’re ineligible to receive Social Security Disability benefits. You can still be awarded benefits if the Social Security Administration deems that your condition is one that “impairs” you. If the SSA determines that your condition prevents you from being able to do your job or any job, then odds are your case will likely be accepted.
