In the world of disability claims, the Social Security Administration’s ‘Blue Book’ is a big deal. It’s like a guidebook that talks about different health problems and disabilities that can make you eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits.
Right now, the Blue Book has lots of problems listed in it. They could be problems with your body, your mind, or your feelings. Every year, they add even more to this book. This can make it easier for more people to get the benefits they need.
Here in Kansas City, we’re experienced in disability law. Our disability lawyers really want to help local folks who qualify for disability benefits. That’s why we’ve put together these sections and lists of problems that we’ve helped people with:
What Physical Disorders Qualify For Disability?
To function at work and during daily activities, we need to be able to physically function. A person’s ability to stand, lift objects, cook, and clean for themselves are among the many basic daily activities that can be severely impacted by the following conditions:
Please be aware that this isn’t a full list of all conditions that qualify according to the Social Security Administration (SSA). Conditions like cerebral palsy, which can impact a person’s ability to do physical activities, gainful activities, everyday motor functions, and work, might also make someone eligible for disability benefits, even if they’re not explicitly mentioned in the Blue Book.
Contact our attorneys to see if your condition qualifies.
What Neurological Disorders Qualify For Disability?
Your physical well-being and mental well-being are closely linked. In many cases, any of the conditions mentioned above might bring along notable psychological symptoms that could categorize it as a neurological condition. Similarly, the opposite can also be true for neurological or mental disorders that qualify for Social Security disability benefits. Below is a list of impairments identified in the Blue Book as neurological disorders:
Once more, please note that this isn’t an exhaustive list of neurological conditions or disorders that meet the criteria. Typically, the seriousness of these conditions over 12 months and a person’s medical record are often the factors that make one of these conditions eligible for SSDI or SSI.
Conditions That Fit Into More Than One Category
For conditions like Parkinson’s disease, their effects aren’t only limited to just physical or psychological aspects as described in the Blue Book. Instead, they might fall into a category that emphasizes both types of effects. Here are a few examples of this:
- Brain injuries (Including Traumatic Brain Injuries)
