Physical Impairments & Social Security Disability
Various Kinds of Physical Impairment
Although Social Security disability can be received for mental disorders, as well, most claims are made to compensate for physical impairments. These impairments come in many forms and must be evaluated by a licensed doctor or chiropractor to determine whether or not they qualify as a disability. The amount of the disability benefits will also be determined by the physician or chiropractor depending on the severity of the disability.
The Social Security Administration (SSA) provides an extensive Listing of Impairments that are qualified as disabilities. They include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Visual impairments
- Speech impairments
- Loss of hearing
- Respiratory problems
- Heart disease and other cardiovascular issues
- Neurological disorders
- Skin disorders
- Digestive disorders
