SSA’s Listing of Impairments

Does My Disability Qualify Me For Benefits?

Listing of Impairments for Social Security Disability Benefits

At Jorgensen Law, we are pleased to assist people throughout the state of California in Social Security Disability matters. We assist clients with initial applications for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI), as well as SSDI appeals and SSI appeals.

To qualify for Social Security Disability benefits, you must have a qualifying disability. For SSDI benefits, you must have a qualifying disability that has significantly impaired your ability to work for at least 12 months. SSI, by comparison, is available for disabled people who have limited income and financial resources.

To contact an attorney at our San Diego law office, call 888-855-2948.

A physical disorder or mental disorder must be deemed sufficiently severe by the Social Security Administration (SSA) in order to receive benefits. For information about physical disorders or mental disorders that may qualify for relief, visit the SSA website, or contact Jorgensen Law.
