Disability Involving the Respiratory System

If you are applying for Social Security disability insurance or SSI disability benefits based on a breathing disorder, you need to do more than state symptoms like shortness of breath, wheezing, chest pain, and coughing. You'll have to provide Social Security with medical evidence from your doctor showing that you have had poor pulmonary function test results or frequent hospitalizations for acute breathing problems. For some lung problems, Social Security will want to see 12 months of doctor's notes and hospital records. The articles below cover the most common types of respiratory problems that cause disability.
