Social Security Disability for Physical Impairment
Social Security Administration’s List of Impairments
Most applications for Social Security disability stem from physical impairments that prevent an individual from working in any occupation. These physical impairments must be severe enough that the individual is unable to work in any capacity and they must be expected to last for at least 12 months or be considered terminal.
In order to receive benefits, you must prove that you have one of the following:
- Impaired musculoskeletal system
- Impaired respiratory system
- Impaired cardiovascular system
- Genitourinary impairments
- Skin disorders
- Endocrine disorders
- Mental disorders
Other impairments can include problems with senses, your digestive or immune system, any neurological or hematological disorders, and more. At Agnew & Rosenberger PLLC, we can help you understand your eligibility.
What do I need to obtain benefits?
Successfully filing a claim for disability can be difficult. To ensure that you complete all of the necessary steps, it is beneficial to retain a knowledgeable Virginia Social Security disability lawyer for counsel. A lawyer can help you gather adequate medical documentation of your disability to prove that you are unable to work, that the disability is expected to last for at least a year, and that it falls under any one of the eligible. Whether your disability is the result of an injury, an illness, or a disease, you have the right to file for Social Security disability benefits if you are unable to work.
