What Disabilities Qualify Under SSDI/SSI?

You know your injury or illness. You know that it makes daily chores and recreational activities painful. You know that it prevents you from working, and has taken away your ability to earn a living for your family. How could the Social Security Administration (SSA) have denied your claim for disability benefits?

At the law offices of Pamela Thomas Jones, P.C., we help individuals in Gilmer County and throughout North Georgia appeal denials and obtain the benefits they need. Since 1999, our law firm has handled cases involving many different types of disability. We take the angst out of the process by explaining the law, your rights and what you should expect based on your situation.

The SSA's Listing Of Impairments

The SSA developed a listing of impairments to assist examiners in the process of making disability determinations. You may suffer from a single condition or combination of impairments. It is important to remember that even if your condition is not included in the manual, you may still qualify for benefits.

Listed below are only a few of the conditions included on the list and examples of case we have handled:

  • Physical disabilities: Back injury, brain injury, chronic pain, epilepsy, migraines, heart issues, vision loss, hearing loss, degenerative disc disease, arthritis, cancer, Parkinson's, asthma, Crohn's disease, chronic pain or fibromyalgia
  • Mental impairments or intellectual disabilities: Autism, learning disabilities, memory loss, depression, schizophrenia, anxiety, PTSD, ADHD or bipolar disorder
