How to Show the SSA Your Impairment and Receive SSDI in Vermont

Living with a disability is challenging. The activities you once loved become difficult, and keeping the job you once loved may be impossible. Although you know your impairments should qualify you to receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits in Vermont, you may not know how to show how these impairments leave you unable to perform your job.

Non-Severe Social Security Disability Ailments

Many people who apply to receive SSDI in Vermont are denied because they do not show how their disability limits them. In some cases, a disability may seem like a non-severe impairment, which can make getting SSDI more difficult. Some examples of this include impairments, such as:

  • Insomnia, or any type of sleep disorder
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Difficulty with short-term memory
  • Inability to focus or concentrate on tasks
  • Non-severe gastrointestinal ailments
     

Although these symptoms alone may not qualify you to receive SSDI in Vermont, they may strengthen your application if you are able to show how they directly impact your ability to work.

Showing All of Your Impairments to Receive SSDI

Many of these symptoms are associated with serious conditions, such as fibromyalgia, depression, chronic fatigue syndrome, or more. When you apply for SSDI in Vermont for these impairments, it is possible to be denied benefits because your individual case may not be considered severe enough. However, when you combine all of your impairments—such as those listed above—with a physical or mental disability, the Social Security Administration gets a clearer image of how your disability impacts your life and the severity of your impairment.

To increase the likelihood of your application being approved for SSDI in Vermont, it is important that you list all of your impairments, including those that you may not think are directly related to your disability. This will give the SSA a clearer idea of how debilitating your impairment is, which will increase the chances of you being approved for the disability income you need.
