Are Certain Medical Conditions Always Approved by the SSA?
There are some conditions that are almost guaranteed to result in approvals for Social Security benefits. The key term there is “almost”, however. There are no sure things where getting approved for benefits is concerned, so be aware that you may have to go through an appeals process or may even get denied for conditions that you believed were automatic arrivals.
The Social Security Administration uses the Impairment Listing Manual as part of their means of approving or denying benefits. Some of the conditions in this manual, if they are at the appropriate level, mean that there is a very good chance that you’ll get approved.
It’s important, however, to make sure that you continue getting documentation of your condition through treatment by your physician. Good evidence increases your chances of getting your claim approved. If you have to go through the appeals process, having legal representation can be of great assistance.
