What Physical Disabilities Does Social Security Disability Cover?
TBI has a profound effect on hundreds of people’s lives, leaving them physically disabled and without speech, hearing, or sight. Memory loss is common, as is changes their personality, irritability, social anxiety, depression, and severe mood swings. These can keep a person from being able to work and make them a possible candidate for SSDI.
Spinal Cord Injuries (SCI) generally have a sound medical history because they often result in immediate paralysis that requires extensive medical care and physical therapy. It is extremely rare that patients recover fully from these injuries. If not permanently paralyzed, patients are daunted by the injury in some way for the rest of their lives and are urged not to do activities that might agitate the injury. This could mean the person is unable to work.
A back injury is different from a spinal cord injury in that it effects the muscles, spine, ligaments and tendons. Chronic back pain is one of the most common injuries that render a person unable to work. It requires rest and sometimes expensive prescription pain management. Your chronic back pain can make you eligible to receive SSDI.
Though devastating, losing a limb does not guarantee SSDI benefits. In fact, it is considered fully recoverable, allowing the victim to find gainful employment. The loss of two limbs is a different story, unless the person lost both legs. Being in a wheelchair is considered fully recovered and able to seek employment.
Being legally blind may make you eligible for SSDI benefits, particularly if it was due to an accident that came later in life or is accompanied with another ailment such as deafness or TBI.
This is a severe form of paralysis that effects all limbs and some organs. It requires 24-hour assistance and is often accompanied by other social security benefits such as Medicaid. There are also other programs on the state level that the patient may be eligible for above the federal insurance programs.
