Conditions Covered by SSDI

South Dakota SSDI Lawyers

The Social Security Administration recognizes many physical and psychological conditions as qualifying disabilities covered under Social Security Disability Income (SSDI). Contact Helsper, McCarty, and Rasmussen Law Firm to arrange a free consultation to discuss your application for benefits or for help in appealing a denial of your claim.

We have practiced disability law for nearly 20 years, assisting clients throughout South Dakota.   Some conditions are automatically covered, while others require proof that your disability is severe enough to prevent you from working. Our experienced SSD lawyers work with your doctors and health care providers to verify that your condition amounts to total disability under SSA guidelines.

Conditions That May Be Covered

  • Severe asthma or emphysema
  • Heart conditions and high blood pressure
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Morbid obesity
  • Epilepsy
  • Lower back problems, cervical (neck) problems
  • Chronic Pain Syndrome and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Arthritis and fibromyalgia
  • Autism and Asperger's Syndrome
  • Schizophrenia
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Clinical Depression
  • Paralysis
  • Mental Retardation
  • ADD / ADHD (attention deficit and hyperactivity disorders)

There are many other conditions commonly covered if the disability is properly documented and satisfies the Social Security Administration. As attorneys focusing on this area of the law, we are adept at navigating through the Social Security Disability system to help clients qualify for benefits.

What If My Condition is Not Approved?

If a Social Security claim is denied for your particular condition, you are not alone. The majority of all claims are initially denied, but an initial denial does not mean that you will not be able to get qualified later on. Helsper, McCarty, and Rasmussen Law Firm will handle your case through all appeals in order to obtain benefits for you. We review your medical records, affidavits from doctors, and other documentation required to successfully resubmit your claim, appeal to a law judge, or take your case to federal court.
