SSA’s Listing Of Impairments
We Have In-Depth Knowledge Of The Criteria
The Social Security Administration’s listing of impairments is a defined list of physical and mental impairments that may qualify you for benefits. The criteria defined in the manual are used by SSA examiners to aid in the determination of a disability.
At Stephenson Disability Services, we know the methods used by examiners. We know what evidence you need to meet the SSA’s definition of a disability. When you combine our disability representative’s 26 years with Social Security and our attorney’s litigation experience, we know how to help you build a compelling case.
Our offices are in New Albany and Madison, but we provide effective disability services throughout Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio.
Is My Condition On The List?
It is important to remember that a diagnosis alone does not qualify you for benefits. You must still show that your disability meets the criteria defined in the manual.
If your medical condition is not specifically enumerated on the list or is hard to measure, you may still qualify for benefits. We know what the SSA will look for to help establish your case.
Listed below are only a few of the impairments and conditions contained in the manual.
- Cardiovascular impairments: High blood pressure, heart failure, coronary artery disease
- Digestive disorders: Liver disease, Crohn’s disease, IBD
