List of Physical Disabilities: Do You Qualify?

While a physical injury may cause you pain and discomfort, it is important to remember that not every condition will qualify you for benefits from the Social Security Administration. To be eligible to receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits, you must have a physical disability, mental disability, or a combination of the two, that significantly impairs your ability to work for at least 12 months, or that may cause death.

Whether you suffered an illness or were involved in an accident, there are a number of situations that can leave you unable to resume your regular work activities. A physical disability may include an injury, disease, cognitive disability, or another physical impairment.
