The diagnosis of a severe medical condition may lead to SSDI eligibility. Understand the process of applying for benefits can be difficult, which is why it may be beneficial to first speak with a New York Social Security disability lawyer.

There are a number of medical disorders that could potentially qualify an individual for Social Security disability benefits; however, it must be demonstrated that there are severe limitations in functioning and/or an inability to work.

5 Medical Disorders That May Lead to SSDI Eligibility 

  • autoimmune disorders (multiple sclerosis, lupus)
  • digestive system disorders (hepatitis, liver disease)
  • mental disorders (schizophrenia, post traumatic stress disorder)
  • bone, joint & tissue disorders (fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis)
  • neurological disorders (seizure disorder, neuropathy)

These are just some of the disorders and underlying medical conditions that could lead an individual to file a claim for Social Security disability benefits. If you suffer from severe limitations in your functioning that prevent you from working, then your income may be offset with social security disability benefits.
