8 Conditions That Qualify for SSI Disability

medical SSI conditions

Supplemental Security Income, or SSI, covers a wide range of ailments and medical conditions. Do you have one of the following? If so, you may meet the SSI disability qualifications.

Medical Conditions That May Qualify For SSI

1. Hearing loss

Have you had your hearing checked recently? People will often make up for hearing loss by compensating in other ways – by reading lips, by turning the television louder, etc. – so you may not even be conscious of the fact that your hearing has declined. It may be time to visit an audiologist and get assistance.

2. Coronary artery disease

Many cardiovascular conditions will meet the SSI disability qualifications, and coronary artery issues are increasing common among Americans.

3. Sickle cell disease

Many blood disorders qualify people for SSI benefits, and sickle-cell anemia is well within the boundaries of qualification.

4. Rheumatoid arthritis

Three times more women than men have rheumatoid arthritis (RA). This condition most commonly arises between the ages of 30 and 60.

5. Parkinson’s disease

Scientists estimate that at least seven million people worldwide live with Parkinson’s disease. If you are showing signs but have not been diagnosed, you may want to consult your physician.

6. Asthma

Asthma is a chronic disease, and the inflammation from asthma is something that requires daily attention.

7. Depression

Whether it is chronic depression, bipolar disorder, major depression, or some other related condition that you deal with, formal coverage will help in your continued care.

8. Hepatitis

Kidney issues will certainly qualify for SSI disability coverage, and Hepatitis care can be very expensive without proper coverage.

Other SSI Conditions

Of course, many other conditions qualify as well. If you think your condition may qualify, please reach out and get the assistance you deserve from an experienced attorney who focuses on SSI issues.
