Disabilities & Impairments Qualifying for SSDI in Northeast Ohio

If you or a family member has a debilitating illness or suffered a disabling injury, you may need assistance with medical costs and monthly expenses.

He understands the type of medical information you need to present to make your case. To discuss your claim, please call 216-586-2010 or 866-246-7108, or contact us online for a free consultation.

Conditions That Prevent You From Working

The Social Security Administration (SSA) grants SSDI benefits based on a person's ability to perform his or her past work or a different available job. To make this determination, the SSA considers your residual functional capacity, which they define as "the most you can still do despite your limitations."

If you lack the residual functional capacity to perform your past job or other substantial gainful activity, you may receive payments under the Social Security Disability Insurance program or the Supplemental Security Income program.

You must prove that you have a medically determinable physical or medical condition, or combination of conditions, that prevent you from working in any substantial gainful activity. This is more difficult for people under age 50. You may to need show a combination of physical and mental impairments as well as the long-term effects they will have. You must see a doctor and get medical reports documenting each condition.

Conditions that are often approved by the SSA include:

  • Physical impairments, such as heart disease, diabetes, RSD, fibromyalgia and liver disease
  • Mental impairments, such as depression, anxiety disorder and PTSD
  • Injuries resulting from accidents, such as back, neck and spinal injuries and disc disorders

This is only a small sample of medical conditions; if yours is not mentioned, please call our office at 216-586-2010 or 866-246-7108 to schedule an appointment.
