Qualifying Medical Conditions for Social Security Disability

Affordable counsel from an established Suwanee law firm

People who qualify for Social Security disability must have one or more severe medical conditions.

At the Law Offices of John V. Hogan, an Atlanta, Suwanee and Gainesville lawyer, reviews your current medical records to determine whether your conditions qualify. If they do, we proceed with filing your claim using the evidence you already have. If they don’t, we create a brief and collect evidence that supports our argument for why you should receive additional benefits.

What medical conditions qualify?

You need documentation to prove your medical condition. However, medical conditions affecting the following areas have been approved by the Social Security Administration for adults wishing to collect SSDI benefits:

  • Musculoskeletal system
    • Degenerative disc disease
    • Osteoarthritis
  • Respiratory system
    • COPD
    • Asthma
  • Digestive system
  • Cardiovascular system
    • Heart attacks
    • Strokes
  • Immune system
    • Fibromyalgia
    • Lupus
    • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Multi-system impairments
  • Malignant neoplastic diseases
  • Hearing loss
  • Speech impairment
  • Hematological disorders
  • Skin disorders
    • Eczema
    • Psoriasis
  • Genitourinary impairments
  • Endocrine disorders
    • Diabetes
  • Neurological disorders
  • Mental disorders
    • Mild mental retardation
    • Depression
    • Anxiety
    • Bipolar disorder

We understand that the categories for qualifying medical conditions can be daunting. Most of the reasons for benefit denial are related to improper medical history documentation. The attorneys at our law firms in the Atlanta metro area answer your questions so you avoid falling for the more common SSDI myths about how a case is determined.
