Workers’ Compensation/ Social Security Disability Condition Categories

An injury, medical condition, or illness which causes an individual to have extreme difficulty performing the functions necessary for maintaining a stable income is defined as a disability, according to the Social Security Administration’s Disability Benefits Program. According to the Social Security Administration, a person is disabled if they are unable to earn at least 1,010 a month, or if they are visually impaired, 1,690 a month. Millions of individuals are affected by disabilities in the United States and need the assistance of the Workers’ Comp Benefits Program. The criterion that qualifies individuals for benefits is determined by this program, which lists fourteen different categories of disabilities. These include:

  • Immune System Disorders
  • Malignant Neoplastic Disorders
  • Neurological Disorders
  • Psychological Disorders

  • Genitourinary Disorders
  • Skin Disorders

  • sorders
  • Cardiovascular Diseases
  • Respiratory Diseases
  • Sense and Speech

If you are dealing with a disability in one of these categories, you could be entitled to assistance from the social security administration. To qualify, you must complete an application process which includes submitting medical documentation of your condition, including medical diagnoses, record of treatment, and information on how your disability affects your ability to work. Once the social security administration reviews your application, you will begin receiving payments which are calculated based on your need if you are approved for assistance. Each year, a huge number of people apply for social security benefits, but without the proper preparation and documentation, a large majority is rejected. That is why it is important to make sure you have the information and guidance needed to navigate the complicated process of applying for benefits in order to avoid the mistakes that lead to application denials.
