Conditions that May Support a Social Security Disability Claim

When filing a Social Security Disability claim in Orlando, Florida, there are many conditions that may support your claim.

The following conditions may help to support your claim that you need Social Security Disability:

  • Amputation (of 2 limbs)
  • Back injuries (other than simple sprains or strains)
  • Brain injury
  • Brain tumors
  • Cancer (any type)
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Digestive issues (chronic colitis, hemorrhaging, or liver disease)
  • Down Syndrome
  • Heart problems (chronic heart failure, heart disease, heart transplant)
  • Hemodialysis
  • Herniated disk
  • Hip replacement
  • HIV/AIDS
  • Kidney transplant
  • Loss of speech
  • Motor function issues
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Muscular dystrophy
  • Spinal arachnoiditis
  • Spinal injuries


However, bottom line is that your condition alone is not a predictor of whether your claim will be approved. Proving with medical evidence that you cannot work and earn a living for at least 12 months is what the Social Security Administration is looking for when deciding to award benefits.
