The Listing of Impairments | Bellaire Beach Social Security Disability Attorney

The Social Security Administration has created a Listing of Impairments which it uses at Hurdle 3.

The body is divided into “body systems”:

Musculoskeletal System

Special Senses and Speech

Respiratory System

Cardiovascular System

Digestive System

Genito-Urinary System

Hematological Disorders

Skin Disorders

Endocrine System

Multiple Body Systems


Mental Disorders

Malignant Neoplastic Disease

Immune System

Within each are physical or mental impairments that Social Security will recognize as disabling if you meet each and every one of the criteria listed in the impairment. If you meet those criteria, you will be awarded Social Security at Hurdle 3. If not, it is on to Hurdles 4 and 5!

I will cover each system in detail and discuss the most common impairments within those systems. You can look at the Listing Of Impairments here. Welcome to Human Anatomy 101!

These issues are also covered here.
