SSD Eligible Conditions
Ohio Attorneys Identifying SSD Eligible Conditions
Cleveland Lawyers Representing Injured and Disabled People
The Social Security Administration maintains an extensive list of impairments that qualify adults and children for disability benefits. The list is updated periodically and includes many physical and mental impairments. For conditions that do not appear on the SSA listing of impairments, it is possible to obtain benefits by proving that your condition is at least as severe as one of the conditions on the list. While this is an important place to begin, it is not enough to obtain SSD or SSI benefits. Medical evidence is necessary to demonstrate that your condition makes you eligible for benefits.
If you are unsure about whether you have an SSD eligible condition, we can help you. At Garson Johnson LLC, our Cleveland lawyers understand disability claims.

Knowing When You Are Disabled
Many impairments can prevent you from working and qualify you for Social Security benefits, including:
- Heart conditions
- Neurological conditions
- Mental illness
- Spine injuries
- Blood disorders
- Stomach, intestine and colon disorders
For Social Security Disability purposes, you are only disabled if you have a physical or mental condition that prevents you from doing any substantial gainful activity. Even if the condition is serious enough to prevent you from working, you are not eligible for benefits unless the condition has lasted or is expected to last for more than 12 months, or if the condition is expected to be fatal. To prove that your condition meets these requirements, you must be able to provide evidence from credible medical sources.
