- Conditions Commonly Filed for Social Security Benefits

If you are suffering from a disabling condition you may be eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits that provide assistance to you and your loved ones.
In order to determine if you are eligible to receive benefits, you must fill out an online application with the Social Security Administration (SSA). This application helps the SSA determine if you meet its strict qualifications for benefits.
Due to the complexities of the SSD process, it takes more than simply filling out the online application to see if you qualify. It requires that your medical condition has been documented with routine visits to a physician, including following through with treatment options.
Your condition must also be one that the SSA recognizes as disabling, which prevents you from working and is not anticipated to improve within one year.
The following are the most common conditions related to SSA disability claims:
- Injuries and accidents
- Joint, muscle or back conditions like soft tissue injuries and spinal disorders
- Tumors and cancer like lymphomas and leukemia
- Digestive disorders like inflammatory bowel disease and chronic liver disease
- Respiratory and breathing disorders such as asthma, bronchiectasis and cystic fibrosis
- Parasitic diseases and infections
- Behavioral and mental illness disorders like anxiety, schizophrenia, autism and substance abuse
- Poorly defined conditions like chronic fatigue and migraines
- Circulatory and cardiovascular illnesses like high blood pressure, heart disease and arrhythmias
- Hematological disorders like chronic anemia and Sickle cell disease
- Skin disorders such as dermatitis
- Immune disorders like Lupus
Common disorders can be found in the Social Security Administration’s Blue Book of Impairments. The book details chronic conditions that the SSA has determined meet its requirements for benefits.
If your condition is not included in the Blue Book, you may still be eligible for benefits. In these situations, the SSA will carefully evaluate the documents and information you submit about your condition to make sure that it meets its requirements.

Sophia H. at Phillips Law Group has been an absolute joy to work with -quick, responsive, and professional in every interaction. Her breadth of knowledge, from administration to IT to finance, is nothing short of impressive.
I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
Phillips Law Group has a proven track record of success. Juan Roque, in particular, is integral to that. He works with integrity, compassion, and an undefeated optimism that makes him a valuable asset.
Liz was great
Juan Roque has been integral with my legal needs. Communication has been easy. He conveys information I can easily understand without a lot of "Legal Fluff" jargon. I will certainly do business with Phillips Legal team again and refer them to my friends and family.
Kathy Hudson and Donato Giovanatto. Continues to go above and beyond the call of duty. Reaching out to the insurance company about the damage to the vehicle. Forcing them to take responsibility.
Sophia H is very helpful.

Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman. I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team. If you have a car accident, slip and fall in a store, or get punched in the face, call Phillips.
