CHRONIC DISEASES AND DISABILITY

In determining if you have a valid disability claim, the LTD/STD Plan Administrator will follow the requirements set forth in your Plan Documents specifying the definition of disability.

The Social Security Administration (SSA) follows the rules and requirements for their various programs and lists them in a publication called Disability Evaluation Under Social Security (DDS), also known as The Blue Book.

 

In The Blue Book, medical conditions are listed that make the cut for disability benefits. These include some chronic conditions that have severe symptoms that limit your performance.

Some chronic conditions that may qualify you for disability benefits:

  • Angina

 

  • Asthma

  • Autoimmune disorders

  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

  • Diabetes mellitus

  • Headaches

  • Heart disease

  • Hepatitis

  • High blood pressure

  • Hypertension

  • Irritable bowel syndrome

  • Multiple sclerosis

  • Respiratory disease

  • Seizure disorder

  • Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE)
