What Physical Conditions Are Eligible For SSD Benefits?

Individuals who are physically unable to work due to a disability must demonstrate by exhaustive examination and comprehensive documentation that their physical condition indeed prevents them from working. After this has been shown, Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits may be granted.

At Cutter Hall Karlock, L.L.C., we have more than 60 years of combined experience handling SSD claims. Drawing on our knowledge, we are able to advise clients as to their rights and the likelihood of their obtaining benefits.

Qualifying Physical Conditions

There are many different types and variations of physical conditions that qualify for Social Security Disability benefits, including:

Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia has recently been recognized as a qualifying condition. Characterized by widespread and chronic pain, and having a painful response to non painful stimuli, fibromyalgia diagnoses are increasing across the country. Individuals who suffer from fibromyalgia are often unable to hold steady employment and function as normal in their daily lives. It is for these reasons that SSD benefits are now being granted to fibromyalgia sufferers.
