Social Security Listings are regulations that describe conditions that if met automatically leads to a finding of disability.
It is very difficult to fall within a listing. Examples of listings are blindness, severe limitations on walking, severe heart conditions, or multiple hospitalizations for mental illness.

The Social Security Disability listings describe conditions. But just being diagnosed with the condition does not mean you are disabled.

The listings describe the type of limitations that may result from the conditions. Social Security focuses on these limitations.

Remember, as long as you work full time you are not disabled, no matter what conditions you may have. For instance, blind people who work full time cannot be disabled. However, when they stop working full time they can apply for Social Security disability.
