Can You Claim Disability for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Carpal Tunnel Social Security Disability

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a painful medical condition that often strikes people who perform repetitive physical tasks with their hands. Office workers, chefs, cashiers, and assembly workers are some of the most common professions that cause this condition, though carpal tunnel can crop up in just about any line of work. The condition causes intense pain, numbness, tingling, cold sensations, and swelling. In these cases, it’s often difficult to work, and disability insurance (SSDI) may be your best option.

At Jeffrey A. Rabin and Associates, our attorneys are well-versed in working within the SSDI system, and we can help you build a solid case for benefits. We have conveniently-located offices in Chicago, Park Ridge, Winfield, Joliet, Crystal Lake, Ford Heights, and Libertyville.

Is Carpal Tunnel a Disability?

Unfortunately, carpal tunnel symptoms can make it difficult, if not impossible, for you to adequately perform your job. However, many doctors will not describe carpal tunnel syndrome as disabling. It’s also rare for a doctor to suggest that you can’t work for more than a year, which is a requirement of SSDI.

The Social Security Administration (SSA) relies on medical evidence and doctor statements to determine disability status. This means that carpal tunnel syndrome acting as the basis for a successful claim for disability benefits is rare.
