A: The SSA evaluates your medical condition by looking at the “Listing of Impairments” and/or assessing your work-related limitations. The “Listings” outline each major body system, and provide requirements necessary for proving disability. Many of the listed impairments are permanent or likely to result in death. For all other conditions, the SSA assesses your medical evidence which must demonstrate that your disorder will last at least 12 months and prevent you from working at any job. At Disability Help Group we work hard to build a strong medical file–we request your medical records and medical evaluations from your doctors.
