The Social Security Administration (SSA) is a complex framework of departments and decision makers who may seem intent on denying people benefits they are entitled to. The truth is that SSA has a very specific list of qualifying disabilities and disorders.

We receive many calls from people wondering whether their disability or disorder will qualify for benefits. It is often difficult to determine exactly what the SSA will decide about your initial claim, but this is a list of the impairments or disabilities currently recognized for benefits. Contact MARK W. SMITH & ASSOCIATES to schedule an opportunity to meet with us about your claim.
