The evaluation process follows strict criteria to determine an applicant’s eligibility. For example, the type of disability must be included in the Social Security Administration’s List of Impairments.
Types of disability in the SSA’s Listing of Impairments include:
A diagnosis, or even a visible injury or impairment, is not enough to win Social Security Disability benefits. You must meet specific medical criteria, and demonstrate that your medical condition causes serious physical or mental restrictions that prevent you from working. You must prove your disability claim. That’s where an experienced SSD lawyer comes in.
