Winning SSD Based on Obesity

If you struggle with severe obesity, you may win Social Security Disability benefits on that basis alone. Alternatively, you may win benefits if your obesity causes or complicates other health problems.

Social Security recognizes the serious risk factors associated with obesity, including: diabetes, heart disease, stroke, osteoarthritis, peripheral vascular disease, sleep apnea, breast cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer, and mental illnesses such as depression.

Obesity May Qualify You for SSD

If you cannot work full-time due to health problems, then you are eligible to receive Social Security Disability benefits. Severe obesity often restricts a person’s ability to perform certain physical or mental tasks required by most jobs.

Obesity may limit your ability to walk, stand, sit, lift, carry, push, pull, climb, stoop, crouch, and balance. It can lead to drowsiness and lack of mental clarity. Fatty tissue may restrict your ability to use your fingers and hands.
