Disability for Obesity Infographic
Obesity can leave you unable to work, especially when it’s combined with other medical conditions. If it limits your ability to stand, sit, stoop, bend, lift, carry, push or work with your hands, obesity can rule out many jobs. Social Security Disability benefits provide life-saving financial support—including monthly checks—when you can’t work due to health problems. But applying for Social Security Disability for obesity can be complicated because it often includes showing how this medical condition combines with other conditions to exacerbate your inability to work. Winning benefits requires submitting medical records proving that your overall health problems are serious.
