Physical Disabilities

Ohio Social Security Disability Attorneys

To be eligible to receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits, you must have a physical disability, mental disability or a combination of the two that is expected to significantly impair your ability to work for at least 12 months or may cause death. A physical disability may include an injury, disease or other physical impairment.

Physical impairments that may constitute a qualifying SSDI disability (depending on their severity) include:

  • Cardiovascular illness or injury (heart and circulatory system)
  • Respiratory illness or injury (e.g., lung disease)
  • Neurological impairments (e.g., brain damage and impairment)
  • Endocrine system impairments (involving hormone production problems)
  • Hematological disorders (blood-related conditions)
  • Immune system disorders (HIV, Lyme disease and others)
  • Neoplastic diseases (malignant tumors, including brain tumors and leukemia)
  • Digestive system impairments
  • Skin disorders
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Epilepsy
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Chronic pain
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes

Even in cases in which a single medical condition is not sufficient to impair an individual's ability to work for 12 months, a combination of physical and/or mental impairments may provide a sufficient basis to obtain SSDI benefits. Visit our section on multiple medical conditions to learn more.
