Social Security Disability: Multiple Physical And/Or Mental Impairments

To be eligible to receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits, you must have a qualifying physical or mental disability or a combination of the two that is expected to significantly impair your ability to work for at least 12 months. In many cases, people who are eligible for SSDI benefits suffer from a variety of physical and/or mental health impairments, which, when combined, significantly impair their ability to work.

This is an important point, because it is critical for SSDI claimants to document all of their physical and/or mental impairments to make the most compelling argument that they are unable to work. For example:

  • A person may be unable to work due to a combination of multiple mental health challenges, such as a combination of anxiety and depression.
  • A person may be unable to work due to a mental health disorder that is combined with a physical impairment, such as depression combined with migraines and heart problems.
  • A person may be unable to work due to a combination of physical impairments, such as a combination of back pain, knee pain and chronic fatigue.

At Philip J. Fulton Law Office, we take time to understand how all of your conditions are impacting your ability to work. Our Social Security Disability attorneys have a strong record of results because they take time to handle each case with meticulous care.

To prove that your ability to work has been significantly impaired by your medical conditions, our attorneys will take time to listen to you, ask you questions about your physical and/or mental impairments, carefully gather and review your medical records, and build a strong case for the SSDI benefits you are entitled to receive. If you are ineligible for SSDI benefits due to an insufficient work history, we also help with Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claims and appeals.
