Many Texans suffer from disabling medical conditions but do not know that those conditions may qualify them for Social Security Disability benefits.

These disability benefits are designed to help you pay for medical bills and living expenses when you cannot function normally or work. Even if you are considered disabled, your application could be denied due to the extremely complicated application process. If you are considering applying for Social Security Disability benefits, do not wait to call our experienced disability benefits lawyers today.


Who is Considered Disabled?

There is no easy answer about who is considered disabled. The Social Security Administration processes each individual application to determine if the applicant has a disability or not. If you are considered disabled, you may still be denied Social Security Disability benefits. Disabling medical conditions is a tricky topic, but the below list may help you determine if you should apply for disability benefits. If you suffer from any of the following, you may be considered disabled.

  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Strokes
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Cancer (all kinds)
  • Depression
  • Strokes
  • Lupus
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Hepatitis C
  • Kidney or liver disease
  • Glaucoma
  • Schizophrenia

This list includes only a small fraction of the disabling conditions that the Social Security Administration will accept as disabilities.

If you suffer from any of the above, or any other serious medical and mental condition, and your condition prevents you from working, you may be entitled to receive Social Security Disability benefits.

In order to prove that you are disabled, you must be prepared to submit certain documentation with your application.

You can only receive benefits if you cannot work because you have a medical condition that is expected to last at least one year or result in death. In order to prove your condition meets these requirements, you will need to submit updated medical records from your doctor or health care professional that show your disabling medical condition and how your condition prevents you from working. These medical records will prove to the Social Security Administration that you are not able to work given your age, education, and work experience because of your disability. Based on the type of disabling condition, you will need to show physical or mental impairment that prevents you from leading a normal life and working.
