Types of disabilities that may qualify for Social Security benefits
In order for our Pensacola and Mobile disability lawyer to help you obtain Social Security disability benefits, you must suffer from a total disability as defined by the Social Security Administration (SSA). The SSA only provides benefits to workers filing for disability insurance who worked long enough in jobs under Social Security, who have a disability that has lasted or is expected to last for at least one year or result in death and whose disability leaves them unable to earn an income. Almost any type of disability that meets these requirements may qualify you for benefits:
- Loss of musculoskeletal function or loss of motion
- Certain loss of vision, hearing, speech or other special senses
- Chronic, persistent respiratory infections and diseases, including cystic fibrosis
- Cardiovascular impairments
- Certain digestive system disorders
- Reproductive organ and urinary system diseases, including chronic renal disease
- Certain blood disorders
- Certain skin disorders
- Certain disorders resulting from hormonal imbalances
- Impairments affecting multiple body systems such as Down Syndrome
- Certain neurological problems, including epilepsy, brain tumors, multiple sclerosis and traumatic brain injuries
- Certain mental disorders, including psychotic disorders, mental retardation, anxiety disorders, personality disorders and autism
- Certain cancers
- Immune system disorders, including autoimmune disorders, immune deficiencies and HIV
