What Is A Severe Impairment?
A severe impairment is a severe medical condition that significantly interferes with the performing of normal daily functions or activities at a work site. A severe impairment does not necessarily have to be a disability, but it does have to have more than a minimal impact on the ability of a person to do their job.
The Social Security Administration (SSA) recognizes a variety of impairments as possible grounds for approving claims, including serious chronic pain, demonstrated mental illness and:
- Various types of cancer including lung, breast, lung and prostate cancer
- Heart disease and related conditions such as heart valve disease
- Serious digestive disorders such as Crohn’s disease and irritable bowel syndrome
- Degenerative and rheumatoid arthritis
- Spinal cord injuries that include bulging disks, pinched nerves and herniate disks
- Type 1, Type 2 or Gestational Diabetes
