Understanding Physical Disabilities And SSD
Even for physical illnesses that are visibly apparent, the Social Security Administration (SSA) has rigorous requirements before you can receive Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. As a result, even simple cases become complicated. But, not all physical disabilities or illnesses are visible. Many chronic illnesses and impairments have very real physical effects while never being outwardly apparent. This can make filing for SSD benefits even more difficult.
Providing Evidence Of Physical Illness Or Disability
The SSA requires more than a doctor’s note to prove a physical impairment. And, just because a condition is on the Blue Book list, a listed condition does not, on its own, mean that you will get approval for benefits. Methods for showing a qualifying condition includes providing the SSA:
- Documentation confirming a diagnosis
- Test results, including blood panels and MRI results
- Proof of your inability to perform daily tasks
- Comprehensive medical files for the duration of your condition
For all SSD benefit cases, you are going to need legal aid. Many people are denied when they first file for benefits. At The Law Offices of Tony Farmer and John Dreiser, our attorneys can help you gather the evidence you need to meet your SSD requirements and receive your benefits.
