Getting Disability Benefits for a Listed Impairment

To automatically qualify for disability benefits (either SSDI or SSI), you must prove you have a severe, medically determinable impairment that matches the criteria of a condition listed in the Social Security's listing of impairments. Social Security employees and disability lawyers refer to this listing as the "Blue Book," "the Listings," or the "List of Disabilities."
