Covered Conditions

Conditions Covered by SSDI

The Social Security Administration recognizes many physical and psychological conditions as qualifying disabilities covered under Social Security Disability Income (SSDI). Contact The Klein Law Group, P.C. to arrange a free consultation to discuss your application for benefits or for help in appealing a denial of your claim.

We have practiced disability law for nearly 20 years, assisting clients throughout the New York City area, including Long Island and Westchester County. Some conditions are automatically covered, while others require proof that your disability is severe enough to prevent you from working. Our experienced SSD lawyers work with your doctors and health care providers to verify that your condition amounts to total disability under SSA guidelines.

Ailments That May Qualify for Benefits

  • Severe asthma or emphysema
  • Heart conditions and high blood pressure
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Morbid obesity
  • Epilepsy
  • Lower back problems, cervical (neck) problems
  • Chronic Pain Syndrome and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Arthritis and fibromyalgia
  • Autism and Asperger's Syndrome
  • Schizophrenia
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Clinical Depression
  • Paralysis
  • Mental Retardation
  • ADD / ADHD (attention deficit and hyperactivity disorders)

This is not an exhaustive list. Many other conditions are commonly covered if the disability is properly documented and satisfies the Social Security Administration. As attorneys focusing in this area of the law, we are adept at navigating through the Social Security Disability system to help clients qualify for benefits.

What If My Condition is Not Approved?
If a Social Security claim is denied for your particular condition, you are not alone and it doesn't mean you can't get qualified. Actually, the majority of all claims are initially denied. The Klein Law Group, P.C. will handle your case through all appeals to try to win benefits for you. We obtain the medical records, affidavits from doctors, and other documentation required to successfully resubmit your claim, appeal to a law judge, or take your case to federal court.
