You are entitled to disability benefits if you are disabled. That means that a physical or mental impairment prevents you from engaging in gainful employment of any type – not just a job you might have recently held down. Your disability has to be medically substantiated and the impairment will last at least a year or may result in death.
While it is not possible to list every single type of impairments, problems and medical conditions that are considered disabling and worthy of social security benefits, there are a number that are almost universally acceptable. These include such infirmities as autoimmune disorders, digestive system disorders, cardiovascular system disorders and joint and tissue disorders. Also, there are a number of mental or cognitive, psychological and psychiatric disorders that induce social security payments as well including bipolar disorder, panic attacks, post-traumatic stress disorder, autism and more.
