Disability Insurance for Physical Impairment

Physical injury and other such medical conditions are the first things that come to mind when people think of Social Security disability benefits. When a person becomes physically impaired to the point where they are unable to return to the same position they held before, or are unable to return to work at all, they could file a Social Security disability claim to receive some compensation for their lost wages. There are different types of physical impairment, including the following:

  • Physical disability
  • Visual impairment
  • Hearing impairment
  • Balance disorders

As long as a physical impairment will or is expected to last at least 12 months or to result in death, Social Security disability should be granted. The Social Security Administration's website provides a detailed list of eligible impairments, including those that affect the musculoskeletal system, the respiratory system, the digestive system, and the immune system. These are only some of the impairments covered by SSD benefits.

Getting SSDI for Physical Impairment

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is available for those who qualify according to the requirements provided by the Social Security Administration (SSA). If you have been working for the required length of time for a company that offers SSDI and your injury or physical impairment is approved by the SSA, you should receive benefits. If you are denied SSD benefits for a valid claim, you may then be able to appeal the claim and obtain a reversal of the decision.
