As strange as it might seem, not every physical injury or ailment is going
to qualify you for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, or sometimes
called Social Security Disability insurance (SSDI). Those in charge of
granting you SSD have some discretion over your case, able to give or
deny benefits depending on the circumstances of your injury. Although
there is no “set in stone” list of medical conditions that
are guaranteed to qualify you for SSDI, there is a catalogue known as the
Blue Book that tracks the most commonly approved afflictions.
Some of the conditions listed in the
Blue Book include:
- Inflammatory arthritis
- Liver disease
- Major bone fractures
- Muscular dystrophy
- Ruptured discs
- Traumatic brain injury
The Catch with Conditions
As previously stated, the aforementioned conditions are
common in SSD cases but nothing about them guarantees benefits or insurance.
Sometimes success can only come with the help of an experienced SSD attorney.
In other instances, people have suffered an accident and not realized
that any damage was done immediately. This means that they continue to
work despite the apparent danger, and they do not seek proper care or
