Disabling Conditions

Disabling Conditions Eligible for Social Security Disability

Contained on this page is a listing of disabling conditions that can be considered severe enough by the Social Security Administration (SSA) to qualify a person for Social Security disability benefits. These conditions can interfere with an individual’s ability to achieve gainful employment, thereby making that person eligible for SSD benefits.

Many of these conditions are described in the impairment listing manual, or "Blue Book," used by state-run Disability Determination Services (DDS) to determine whether or not a person meets the SSA's criteria for total disability. Claimants who meet the eligibility criteria for a condition listed in the Blue Book should be awarded benefits through the Social Security Disability application process.

In addition to the Blue Book conditions listed below, individuals may qualify for disability benefits under one of the SSA's 200+ Compassionate Allowance listings. Through the Compassionate Allowance initiative, claimants suffering from extremely severe medical conditions may qualify for expedited consideration of their Social Security Disability claim, thereby drastically reducing the waiting period before approval.
