About Qualifying Disabilities

At Nolan & Shafer PLC, we have years of experience with helping clients claim disability benefits. You can rely on our Muskegon SSDI attorney to provide you with the caring and capable advocacy you deserve.

What Is an SSA Impairment Listing?

One way that you may qualify for Disability Insurance Benefits (DIB) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is by meeting the requirements in a Social Security Disability Listing. The listings (also called the “Blue Book”) contain details on impairments that the Social Security Administration (SSA) considers severe enough to prevent you from working.

Qualifying Disabilities

The Blue Book lists qualifying disabilities in the following areas:

  • Cancer
  • Skin disorders
  • Digestive system
  • Mental disorders
  • Endocrine disorders
  • Respiratory disorders
  • Cardiovascular system
  • Neurological disorders
  • Musculoskeletal system
  • Genitourinary disorders
  • Hematological disorders
  • Immune system disorders
  • Special senses and speech
  • Congenital disorders affecting multiple body systems

The listing of impairments applies to both DIB claims and SSI claims. Social Security updates the online disability listings with any changes. Read more about a particular disability area by clicking here.
