Medical Conditions that Qualify for Benefits

Social Security pays disability benefits if you have a medical condition that has prevented you from working or is expected to prevent you from working for at least 12 months. To qualify, your condition must significantly limit your ability to do basic work activities, such as walking, sitting and remembering.

The law has outlined a list of medical conditions that automatically qualify you as disabled. If your condition is not on this list, it does not mean you are not eligible. The state will evaluate your situation to determine if the severity of your medical condition(s) meets or equals that of a listed impairment.

  • Arthritis
  • Breathing problems
  • Heart disease
  • Vision problems
  • Hearing problems
