Claiming Disability: What is considered an impairment?
Posted in: Conditions/Illness on May 20th, 2015

impairmentMost individuals that cannot work because of an injury or disability know for themselves that their impairment is severe. They become astonished when they apply for SSDI to find out they have been denied based on the severity of their disability according to those making the decisions about these benefits.

There is actually an official list of impairments that qualify for SSDI. A medical consultant will compare your disability to the standards set out in their list. All of the impairments that are contained on the list indicate the degree of severity that must be present in order for an individual to be deemed disabled to qualify for the benefit.

If you happen to have an impairment that is on the list and you have met the criteria then you shouldn’t have a problem getting your disability. If on the other hand you don’t, which a lot of people fall into this category, then chances are you will be denied.

It is well worth using a disability lawyer to assist you with applying for your disability. If you get turned down you can appeal, but this can be a real hassle. It is really important that you have all of the right information available and submitted to support your claim. It isn’t as easy of a task as most people think, and there is a high rate of claim denials.
