04/05/2013 // San Antonio, TX, USA // Wright Disability Firm // Wyatt Wright // (press release)

A number of individuals are faced with life-changing medical conditions that leave them unable to work. Many who apply for Social Security Disability benefits after being diagnosed with a serious medical condition may see their initial application denied often due to mistakes made during the application process. Because filing requirements may vary according to one’s health condition, understanding the requirements outlined by the Social Security Administration for that condition, or working with a qualified disability attorney or advocate who does, may be important for achieving a successful outcome for one’s claim.

The following are some of the types of medical conditions for which individuals may be eligible to receive disability benefits:

• Depression or Mental Illness

• Severe Degenerative Disc Disease or Herniated Disc

• Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

• Heart Disease

• Chronic Renal Disease

• Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

• Lupus


• Chronic Liver Disease

• Cancer

• Psoriatic Arthritis

There are several other medical conditions as well as types of injury for which individuals may be eligible to receive Social Security Disability benefits. In addition to learning the exact requirements outlined by the SSA for a specific condition, it may also be necessary for applicants to obtain documented medical verification about the restrictions that condition places on their ability to carry out certain day-to-day functions. A Social Security Disability attorney or advocate can provide support in the filing process and help one better understand eligibility requirements associated with their specific medical condition.
