Do You Qualify for SSD?

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:

  • Musculoskeletal disorders: spine disorders, amputation(s), major fractures, osteoarthritis, etc.

  • Special senses and speech disorders: blindness, hearing loss, or loss of speech due to any cause

  • Respiratory disorders: chronic bronchitis, cystic fibrosis, lung transplantation, etc.

  • Cardiovascular disorders: chronic heart failure, recurrent arrhythmias, heart transplant, etc.

  • Digestive disorders: gastrointestinal hemorrhage, liver dysfunction, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), etc.

  • Genitourinary system disorders: kidney disease, kidney transplant, etc.

  • Skin disorders: Ichthyosis, dermatitis, burns, etc.

  • Neurological disorders: epilepsy, parkinsonian syndrome, multiple sclerosis (MS), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), traumatic brain injury (TBI), etc.

  • Mental disorders: There are currently 11 categories of mental disorders.

  • Cancer: lymphoma, leukemia, breast cancer, prostate cancer, etc.

  • Immune system disorders: lupus, systemic sclerosis (scleroderma), inflammatory arthritis, etc.

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.

Everyone I came into contact with at acadia was extremely knowledgeable. They walked me through the entire process – always with great professionalism and efficiency. I also felt that they stayed on top of my case and were always doing everything they could to move it forward.


Of course going through the process of filling for disability and dealing with social security, medical records and such is nothing but stressful and confusing. Every time I had a question or problem someone answered my call and was there to help me.


I am so pleased with the professionalism of this office. I tried another law firm and they were extremely rude. A family member recommended I give you a call and I’m glad I did. Acadia Disability Law Group personally helped me through the process of applying for my disability claim, and ultimately we won my case at the hearing level.
