Can You Qualify for Social Security Disability with a Respiratory Disorder

If you have a respiratory disorder that prevents you from working, you are probably worried about how you will support yourself and your loved ones. 

Depending upon the nature of your respiratory disorder, you may be able to qualify for Social Security Disability benefits. However, your ability to get benefits will vary depending upon the nature of your disorder, how severe it is, and whether it has caused you to be too disabled to work. Your condition must also be a long-term one. 

A Los Angeles disability benefits lawyer can help you to determine whether you can qualify for benefits based on a respiratory disorder, so contact an attorney for help as soon as possible. 

Qualifying for Disability Benefits on the Basis of a Respiratory Disorder

In order to qualify for Social Security Disability benefits, you will need to prove you have a medical condition that is either listed on Social Security's listing of impairments or that is medically equivalent to listed conditions.

The listing of impairments is sometimes informally called the "blue book." Respiratory disorders are covered within section 3.00 of the blue book. 

There are many different respiratory disorders addressed in section 3.00 including asthma, cystic fibrosis, and bronchiectasis, among others. 

If your condition is listed, you should determine if you have the required symptoms for that particular condition. If you do, and if you can prove your condition with those associated symptoms stops you from working, you should get benefits. If your condition isn't listed or you don't have the required symptoms, you'll have to prove your medically problems are equally impairing.

A Los Angeles disability benefits attorney can help you to present evidence that your respiratory condition has caused you to be sufficiently disabled, so give us a call today for help trying to claim Social Security disability income.

What's the Best Way to Prove You're Disabled Enough to Get Social Security Disability Benefits?

If you are interested in obtaining benefits through the Social Security Administration because of your disability, you will need to provide proof of your medical condition. A Los Angeles disability benefits attorney can help you to understand how to prove to the SSA that you are disabled enough to be entitled to benefits. 

How Can You Prove You Deserve Disability Benefits?

The Social Security Administration is very strict regarding what it considers to be a qualifying disability. You will need to prove you meet their criteria. The SSA has a Listing of Impairments, which is commonly called the "blue book." You need to show you have a listed disability or one that is as serious as the listed conditions. 

The best way to prove you are sufficiently disabled, therefore, is to determine if your condition is in the blue book and to make sure you have documented medical proof of the symptoms that the SSA has indicated must accompany that condition in order for you to qualify for benefits. If your condition isn't listed, your best option is to have detailed medical records showing how severe your symptoms are.

Your medical records will make or break your case when you apply for Social Security disability benefits. A Los Angeles disability benefits attorney can assist you in making certain you understand what you need to prove to maximize the chances of being approved for benefits and can help you to go through the application process. Contact an attorney today to get an advocate on your side who can help you make your case.
