What Qualifies for Disability Benefits – Part 2


In our previous article, we spoke a little bit about what qualifies for disability.

This time, we will list out some additional criteria, focusing on those that are slightly more difficult to prove medically. However, bear in mind that there is no ‘final’ word on being eligible for SSDI benefits.

SSDI benefits are highly sought after, and as a result, very few applications are granted approval. Ensuring your application receives approval is not impossible, but it requires a judicious mix of understanding eligibility, providing what is asked by the authorities, being able to prove disability effectively, and provide the necessary records and proof.

Let us look at some of the eligibility criteria categories that are difficult to qualify for SSDI benefits, in medical terms, but where, with professional help you can still attempt and gain relief.

Chronic Fatigue

Tough as it may sound, fatigue does result in a disabling condition where an individual is unable to perform tasks necessary for earning a livelihood. However, this is a condition that is difficult to prove as a disability.

The right professional inputs though, can help you overcome challenges you face to receiving aid, and help provide relief.

Post-stroke Disabilities

The after effects of a stroke are disabling. However, there is no fixed definition of what factors as a disability post stroke. Recovery depends on the individual’s personal capacity. But even then, there are some strokes that can leave a person unable to earn a living.

A proper understanding of this condition, coupled with a strong knowledge of the law, can help you get approval for benefits.

Heart Conditions

Heart conditions often leave disability in their wake. Individuals recover, but many never fully. There are some that are more severe than the others. These include heart failure, coronary artery disease, aneurysm, etc. However, heart conditions can prove to be difficult when proving disability for the purpose of SSDI benefits. Some heart conditions offer immediate eligibility, especially the inability to lift certain weights, walk about within a given time period, etc. while others do not.

A professional can help walk you these differences and identify the best way to proceed in order to get you approved.


Reach out for Help

Apart from qualifying for SSDI, it is important that you hire the services of a qualified Social Security Disability Attorney. A professional not just helps you with eligibility criteria, but also helps research, represent, and fight your case better. If you have a slim chance to win SSDI benefits, a professional by your side will help educate you, thus preparing you better. This increases your chances by a higher margin, thus taking you towards a definite approval.
