Many people seeking Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits have questions regarding which physical impairments qualify for benefits payments. Questions and confusion can increase when a claim is denied.

Under the SSA's framework, there are numerous physical & mental disorders that qualify for disability benefits, if severe enough to limit your ability to work. Our Social Security disability attorneys can help you determine whether your condition is limiting enough to qualify for the benefits that you're seeking.
