Does my health condition qualify me for disability benefits?
Any medical condition that limits your ability to work will qualify you for disability.
Now just because you have a medical condition does not mean you are qualified for disability.
The example I give is that statistics by some measures show that 85% of people who are 50 years or older have degenerative disc disease in their spine, but 85% of people who are 50 years or older are not disabled.
Just because you have a diagnosis and just because you have a condition doesn’t mean that you are disabled.
That is a separate process, a separate thing we have to evaluate.
But having a condition – any condition, really – is the starting point.
You have to have something that causes a limitation that prevents you from working.
