Disability Insurance Qualifying Conditions Review
Posted in: Conditions/Illness on March 28th, 2012

disabilty reviewNumerous disability applicants search the web for information about qualifying conditions for benefits. While there is no hard and fast list of which conditions automatically qualify for Social Security Disability, there is a list of common conditions that may qualify in most cases. However, this list is dated and hasn’t always kept up with the changing times.

Updated Information

The Social Security Administration is now taking efforts towards conducting reviews of qualifying medical conditions. Recently added to the list of commonly qualifying conditions is Alzheimer’s Disease, an increasing health problem among many aging Americans. This year, the SSA is planning to expand their review and seek public input on musculoskeletal disorders.

The SSA’s Listing of Impairments currently covers conditions such as cancer, heart and pulmonary problems, stomach or intestinal disorders, disorders of the blood and some neurological disorders. ┬áThere has been a push for the inclusion of musculoskeletal conditions, which can significantly impair a person’s ability to work. Since these disorders typically affect muscles, joints and nerve systems, any impairment in these systems is likely to cause significant interference in the ability to perform even daily living tasks.
