What Conditions Automatically Qualify For Social Security Disability?

  • By: Jeffrey Johnson, Esq.
  • Published: November 22, 2019

The Social Security Administration has a listing manual, also known as the Blue Book, which details a number of conditions that will automatically qualify you for disability. There are many types of conditions listed, including:

  • Musculoskeletal problems
  • Cardiovascular conditions
  • Senses and speech issues
  • Respiratory illnesses
  • Neurological disorders
  • Mental disorders
  • Immune system disorders
  • Various syndromes
  • Skin disorders
  • Digestive tract problems
  • Kidney and genito-urinary problems
  • Cancers
  • Hematological disorders

For a few conditions, simply being diagnosed is enough to get disability. However, for most, there are specific criteria that must be met. If you don’t meet the exact requirements, you can still get disability if your condition is medically equal to a listing. If you meet neither of these requirements, you may qualify for disability if there is no job you can do, based on your disabilities, age, education, and work experience.
