What is the Social Security Blue Book?

Published on April 16th, 2018

Our disability lawyers in Tennessee are familiar with what it takes to fight for your disability rights. We are extremely educated in social security terminology, but we are aware that our clients may not fully understand what it takes to qualify for Social Security Disability. Have you heard of the Social Security Blue Book? This is the Social Security Administration’s list and information about disability impairments.

Officially titled the “Disability Evaluation Under Social Security,” this book provides specific criteria about the impairments, including general information, evidentiary requirements and impairment overviews.

How It Impacts the Disability Claims Process

As you may have guessed, the Blue Book has a huge impact on whether or not clients qualify for disability benefits. It’s important that you have a solid understanding of the Blue Book and whether or not the severity of your condition meets the standards in the Blue Book. Matching your conditions with the criteria in the book doesn’t automatically guarantee that you will obtain benefits. But it is helpful in establishing your condition as legitimate. The book will also outline the documentation you will need to prove yourself legally.
