Q: I have several health problems, but no single one disables me on its own. It is the combination that disables me. Can I get Social Security disability benefits?

A: Social Security will review the combination of impairments that an individual suffers in determining disability. Many claimants for Social Security disability benefits have more than on health problem and the combined effects of all of the health problems must be considered.
