Can I Get Disability Income
for My Medical Condition?

If you can’t work, Social Security Disability benefits are supposed to be there to ease your financial strain and stabilize your life. It doesn’t matter if your health problems are physical or mental, or resulting from an injury or a disease. You can also have a combination of different conditions.

The bottom line is that bad health prevents you from working, so you need disability income.

At the office of Baynetta M. Jordan, P.C., Attorney at Law, we’ve helped people with all kinds of medical impairments, including:

  • Anxiety
  • Back pain
  • Cancer
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Depression
  • Diabetes
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Heart failure
  • Lupus
  • Mental illness
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Ulcerative colitis

If you have any of these—or any other—impairments that make working impossible, tell us about your situation, so we can help you qualify for disability checks. Baynetta Jordon is dedicated to helping people in Lubbock, Plainview, Levelland, Midland-Odessa and all across West Texas.

How to Prove Your Impairment to Social Security

You need disability benefits to make ends meet, but you can’t just tell Social Security you have a serious health problem and expect to win benefits. You have to prove it.

One of the most important parts of your claim is providing records and other evidence from your medical treatment, such as:

  • Medical test results
  • Medical treatment plans
  • Hospitalization records
  • Prescription medication lists
  • Results of treatment
  • Statements from your doctor
  • Statements from your psychologist or psychiatrist

You don’t have to gather all these records on your own while you’re struggling with your health. An experienced disability lawyer, like Baynetta Jordan, can handle it for you.

We’ll even provide an assessment of your claim for FREE.

What If My Impairment Isn’t On the Social Security Disability List?

The government maintains a list of qualifying impairments for Social Security Disability, called its “blue book” listing of impairments.

The list has more than a dozen different categories. But it doesn’t cover every single condition you could have.

If your diagnosis isn’t named, don’t lose hope of winning benefits.

You have options:

  • Showing that your condition is equivalent to a similar condition on the official list.
  • Showing that you have a combination of smaller conditions that add up to severe health problems.
  • Getting a rating of your day-to-day abilities, regardless of diagnosis, which Social Security calls your “residual functional capacity.”
  • Winning benefits through a “medical-vocational allowance”—if Social Security decides your overall condition leaves you unable to function in any type of work.

Your lawyer can help you find the right path, and help you get through it.
