Qualifying Conditions for SSD Benefits

To qualify for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, you must have a qualifying condition. It is important to realize that you don't have to be completely incapacitated to be considered disabled, but you do need to have a disabling condition that prevents you from sustaining full-time work.

At Willis Law, we can help you determine whether you qualify for SSD benefits and guide you through every step of the process from your initial application through any necessary appeals.

Social Security Disability Attorneys In Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids And Paw Paw

Are you qualified to receive SSD benefits? The Social Security Administration (SSA) recognizes a variety of qualifying conditions, including physical conditions and mental conditions. Some of the most common conditions that result in SSD benefit claims are:

  • Back, neck and spinal cord injuries
  • Arthritis and joint damage
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Asthma and lung diseases
  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Cancer
  • Chronic pain disorders
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

Some conditions, such as chronic pain and mental health conditions, can be more difficult to achieve benefits for. This is no reason to give up. We will work with medical professionals and vocational specialists to learn about these conditions and to build a strong case that demonstrates your need for SSD benefits.

Has your claim already been denied? If your claim has been denied, it is important to have an attorney pursue your appeal. You have 60 days from the date of the claim denial to begin the appeals process. Our disability lawyers can guide you through that process, working with experts such as vocational counselors, medical doctors and rehabilitation specialists to demonstrate your need for SSD benefits.
