Social Security List of Impairments

Social Security Administration Impairment Listing

At the Law Offices of Stuart Barasch, we understand that our success requires thorough knowledge of the tools the Social Security Administration uses to determine whether they will provide benefits. One of those tools is the list of impairments.

While having an impairment that is on the list does not necessarily guarantee that benefits will be provided, the ability to show the Social Security Administration that a disability is clearly listed among those eligible for benefits can make getting those benefits more efficient. From offices in Miami Beach, Florida and Los Angeles, California we use our knowledge of this and other Social Security tools to help people nationwide get the benefits they need.

Is Your Disability on the List?

The impairment list to determine disability covers a significant number of medical conditions. A small sampling of those conditions includes:

  • Musculoskeletal system disorders (spine conditions)
  • Respiratory ailments (asthma, emphysema)
  • Cardiovascular system disorders (heart conditions)
  • Mental disorders (depression, schizophrenia)
  • Neurological disorders (traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis)
  • Malignant neoplastic diseases (various cancers)

In order to get disability benefits under a listed condition, the medical documentation must show the condition. Many people are denied because of insufficient documentation. Our lawyers use our decades of experience to get results for those with listed conditions.

What if Your Condition is Not on the List?

Just because your condition is not on the list does not mean you are not eligible. We have the experience and skill to pursue benefits for anyone with any medical condition that prevents gainful employment for one year or longer.

You Only Pay Our Fees if We Get Benefits for You

In Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) cases, attorneys fees are set by statute and must be approved by the Social Security Administration. You only pay if we get benefits for you.
