What disabling conditions ae recognized by Social Security?


Technically speaking, there are no specific injuries or conditions that automatically win a disability case simply for having the diagnosis.  Social Security considers your physical health and mental health in a holistic approach to determine who is and is not disabled.  Every condition you have will be taken into consideration.  Any condition you have is relevant from high blood pressure to spinal fractures and everything in between.

There are some common conditions or injuries Social Security has repeatedly approved claims based on.  Some examples of these conditions are as follows:

Spinal Degenerative Disc Disease

Lumbar or Cervical Radiculopathy

Reconstructive surgery of a weight bearing joint

Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, or Psoriatic Arthritis

Nerve Pain


Myalgia's Or Fibromyalgia

Parkinson's Disease Or Tremors

A Car or Truck Accident

A Work Place Accident


Infectious Disease/ Long Covid 19



Heart Failure

Multiple Sclerosis

Vision or Hearing loss



Bi-polar Disorder

Schizoaffective Disorder


This is not an exhaustive or complete list.   If these or any other physical or mental conditions prevent you from working then you may be entitled to Social Security Disability or SSI.  Please reach out to me for a no obligation consultation.
