Will My Medical Conditions Be Evaluated Individually or In Combination?

If I have more than one illness or injury, will the SSA consider my conditions separately or in combination in evaluating my claim for disability?
Answer: Social Security will look at all of your disabling conditions in combination to determine how they affect your ability to work. As a matter of fact, Social Security must evaluate all of your conditions in making a disability determination, including those that are not categorized as severe.

An attorney experienced in handling Social Security Disability cases can make sure all of your conditions are considered in your claim to maximize your chance of winning.
