While a majority of people know that Social Security disability (SSD) benefits exist, not many are aware of what conditions are covered under this privilege. Contrary to popular belief, federal compensation is not solely reserved for amputees and accident victims. In fact, compensation is available for an extensive collection of afflictions, provided that certain requirements are met. Anyone with a severe medical condition that prevents them from being employed can potentially qualify for compensation. It is quite possible that a person could exhibit symptoms of an eligible problem and not know it!
A wide range of different ailments can warrant SSD benefits, including:
- Musculoskeletal problems
- Cardiovascular conditions
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Multiple forms of cancer
- Partial vision loss or blindness
- Various mental disorders
- Immune system deficiencies
- Severe skin disorders
- Severe diabetes and thyroid disorders
If you are afflicted with any of the above medical conditions, it is imperative that you get checked out by a doctor and retain the services of an experienced attorney. Since the Social Security Administration has a notoriously long backlog of applications, your chances of approval are likely to be low without the assistance of a dedicated attorney.
