List Of Disabling Conditions That Qualify For SSDI/SSI

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:

What Clients are Saying

Find out how the clients who trusted us feel about our firm.

I cannot say enough
good about Matthew Grundy and
ALL of his staff.

I contacted his office October 2020, because I had and still am, fighting breast cancer. I had numerous surgeries, still doing chemo, finished radiation and still fighting the fight. They took care of everything and that was such a blessing because I was too sick and weak to do it myself. I would absolutely recommend them and I am so grateful that a friend referred them to me. They were always polite and punctual returning my calls and emails. Don’t go it alone, let them take care of it, reserve your strength to fight for your health.”

Dear Matt

I want to take a moment to say I appreciate all you do for clients (me) throughout the SSD process. You provided me top-shelf representation, case knowledge and follow up. Thank you!”

— A.S. Leawood, KS

A friend referred
me to Matt Grundy.
He was amazing!

I felt the weight lift off my shoulders. He was caring and efficient and took over the whole process. He handled all correspondence and was my voice in my hearing. I was ecstatic when Matt got my disability approved. I wish I had started with Matt before I ever filed.”

— W.T. Kansas City

After being denied trying to file on my own
I was fortunate to have Grundy Disability Group
recommended to me.

A short survey and a visit then they took control of my case. This was the best decision I’ve ever made. Matt answered all my questions without hesitation and gave me confidence about my case. I’ve already recommended them to others and will do so gladly. Thank you Matt and his team!”

— W.S. Kansas City

I had a great experience
working with this office.

They are thorough, and get the job done with the least amount of stress on the client as possible. I would recommend them to anyone I know who needs help navigating their SSDI claim. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.”

— W.W. Kansas City

I’m epileptic and you recently
just helped me get disability.

I just wanted to email you guys and say thank you guys so much! I appreciate your hard work and dedication.! you guys have helped me get my income back since I haven’t been able to work. Now I can pay my bills again and get caught up again that is a relief. thank you guys again so much god bless you and all your families.”

— A.D. Kansas City

Thanks again for
your help on all this.

From the first conversation I had with Susan Frank, whose advice set me on a course to lay the groundwork of a successful claim – months before I hired you. I spoke to a couple of other places before I spoke to her and there was no comparison. The difference between my initial contact with Susan VS the others was a personal connection and actual value in the phone call. It was informative, connected and extremely helpful. This built trust and made my decision to choose your organization easy. My ongoing dealings with you only confirmed my choice. Matt is extremely connected with his clients and communicates promptly and thoughtfully.”
