Which Conditions Does Social Security Disability Cover?
If you have a disability, you may face obstacles that others do not. Daily life can be challenging enough. Working a full-time or part-time job might be unreasonably difficult. Fortunately, the government can provide benefits if you meet the requirements.
At Jeffrey S. Bowman Attorney At Law, Social Security Disability (SSD) claims are a main focus of my practice. I work with people throughout Georgia who have severe medical conditions. Many of my clients are struggling to make ends meet or support their family. I understand that your financial stability is vital. As your attorney, my priority is advocating for you.
Common Impairments That SSD Can Cover
Many potential conditions may make you eligible for SSD benefits, such as:
- Mental disorders, including severe depression or post-traumatic stress disorder
- Disorders that affect the immune system
- Blindness or other visual impairments
- Other major physical restrictions or illnesses
The Social Security Administration (SSA) includes the complete list of impairments on their website. Many of the possible conditions are terminal or impose permanent limitations.
If you have one of these serious medical conditions, I will be adaptive and responsive to your unique needs while working on your case. Your experience with Jeffrey S. Bowman Attorney At Law matters just as much as the results that I will work to achieve for you.
How Does The Government Determine A Disability?
The type of impairment is not the only factor that determines whether a condition is a disability. Your work history and the extent to which your condition impacts your ability to work can also impact your eligibility. In addition, a medical professional must agree that your condition will prevent you from performing basic tasks for at least one year.
Because the SSA follows specific guidelines, it is critical to get the medical evidence and legal information you need to make a strong claim. Otherwise, your claim may be denied. I can work with you one-on-one to raise your chances of obtaining benefits.
