Medical Eligibility for Social Security Disability

Medical Conditions that Automatically Qualify for Social Security disability

The Social Security Administration’s (SSA) medical disability impairment listing manual (called the blue book) lists a number of medical impairments, both physical and mental, that will automatically qualify an individual for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI), provided the individual’s condition meets, or is equivalent to, the specified criteria for a listing.

Non-Blue Book Medical Conditions

If you are filing for Social Security disability and your condition is not listed in the Social Security Administrations (SSA) “Blue-Book” of Qualifying Medical Conditions, that’s okay. Let’s say you are suffering from migraine headaches, or rheumatoid arthritis, you may still be eligible for disability, if your condition is so severe it prevents you form working a full time job, and incapacitates you from routine daily activities. The medical condition must also be well documented to prove to the SSA you have been persistently seeking medical help.
