    The Social Security Administration (SSA) considers some types of  respiratory illnesses disabling conditions.

    What Is a Respiratory Illness Disability?

    The Social Security Administration defines a respiratory illness as disabling when medical evidence proves a condition prevents the sufferer from performing their job duties and prohibits them from doing other types of work as well. Some of the most common  respiratory illnesses that may qualify for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits include:

    • Chronic Pulmonary Insufficiency- These are impairments caused by chronic disorders of the respiratory system. They cause the permanent loss of pulmonary function, which results in coughing, wheezing, chest pain, and exertion.
    • Asthma- A chronic disease that can cause the sufferer to have trouble breathing due to the constriction of airways. Symptoms include shortness of breath, coughing, wheezing, and chest pain.
    • Cystic Fibrosis- This disorder causes the mucus membranes of the airway and lungs to thicken. It can result in trouble with digestion, nutrition, and development.

    What Should I Do if I Suffer From a Respiratory Illness?

    If you suffer from a respiratory illness that prevents you from working,  it may be wise to talk to a qualified Social Security Disability lawyer. He or she will be able to answer any questions you have regarding your legal rights to compensation for your condition and can also help you prepare your case.
