What Disabilities Qualify for SSDI?

Determining Disability Qualifications for Benefits

Government programs have a reputation for having lots of red tape. The attorneys at Jeffrey Buskirk & Associates have 25 years of experience assisting clients to obtain Social Security Disability benefits. The following list represents only a fraction of the impairments and illnesses that could keep you from holding your job.

Physical Impairments

Any type of injury or physical impairment that prevents you from doing your job can qualify you for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. These types of injuries can include:

  • Disabling neck and back injuries
  • Degenerative disk disease
  • Loss of a limb or problems with use of hands
  • Eye problems
  • Paralysis
  • Severe head injuries
  • Heart problems


If you suffer from an illness or psychological disorder that makes it impossible for you to continue with your job, you could qualify. These types of conditions can include:

  • Seizure conditions
  • Thyroid conditions
  • Cancers
  • Strokes
  • Diabetes complications
  • Bipolar disorders
  • Depressive disorders
  • Schizophrenia
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder


Qualifying for Social Security Disability benefits does not limit your type of impairment. Many people suffer from combinations of physical and mental disorders. Our lawyers can assess your situation and get the proper medical records to make your claim.

Our Role in Your Qualification

Our Grove City attorneys start by collecting all of your medical records. We also help get functional capacity reports from your doctors. These reports detail what you can and cannot do physically or mentally.

After we have functional capacity reports, we summarize your medical records and submit a brief to the Social Security Administration.
