Social Security Disability SSI List of Conditions and Impairments




Many medical conditions--physical, psychological, and psychiatric--are contained in the Social Security Administration's Blue Book listings, otherwise known as the publication, "Disability Evaluation under Social Security". When a condition is given a "listing", the listing will describe in detail the requirements for being awarded disability through the listing. However, it may surprise you to know that some of the most common conditions (Fibromyalgia, for example) do not actually have their own individual listings. At the end of this list, we provide information on how to get approved for disability if your condition is not actually addressed by the blue book, i.e. the list of impairments.
