The Most Common Disabling Medical Conditions

Every type of disability is evaluated differently by Social Security


The Social Security Administration handles millions of disability cases every year. The following list represents the most common conditions that qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. SSA employs a basic definition of what it means to be “disabled” under their rules, as well as a complex process to determine whether you are disabled under their rules. So, while the definition and process are the same, each type of medical condition is evaluated differently. Specifically, SSA has broken down the human body and mind into 14 Impairment Listings that define what it means to be disabled under each of those categories. These impairment categories are assessed at Step 3 of the 5-step sequential evaluation used by Social Security.

The most common types of disabling conditions:
