Before we give away what medical conditions qualify for disability, you should bear in mind this is no mean feat. If you’re striving to fake one of medical conditions for disability approval, you have to be well prepared. Whichever condition you pick from our list, it requires some thorough preparation. Luckily, you needn’t hurt yourself in any way to pretend you have one of the illnesses. It’s more about acting and pretending than anything else. However, that doesn’t just imply lying to the doctor. Your obligation is to do some deep research on the topic so as not to get caught. Let’s start by defining what is considered to be a disability. We found a list of disabilities and definitions at the Hood College. According to the Americans with Disabilities Act, a person with a disability is someone who has has a physical or mental impairment limiting one or more major life activities. The person can have a record of such an impairment or can be regarded as having one. The impairments can be divided into two groups: physical and cognitive. The latter are easier to fake, so they are more prominent in our list. We’ll reveal some tricks as you are reading about them so you could choose the easiest one for you. The last one requires that you are of certain age, but the rest are equally easy. Since what qualifies as the easiest illness to fake for disability is about personal preferences, the rest of the list is random.

On the other hand, if you’re a physician reading this, you’ll find this extremely helpful, too. These are the illnesses whose symptoms are easy to demonstrate. Most of them come down to the patient’s word against yours. Medicine is a tricky field, and if a person states he/she feels pain without any obvious medical reason, how are you to determine he or she is lying? It’s not as easy as it sounds.

To collect the data on easiest illnesses, we searched Migraine Again, National Review, PolitiFact and Research Gate. There were good examples of what you’re looking for, as well as a report on how to help doctors identify a fake disease. In order to hear about the first-hand experience of people with approved false benefits, we checked Digital Spy‘s forum and noted some amazing, inspiring stories.

Of course, faking dementia requires certain age. Any occurrences before you are 65 are considered early and will require special attention. Most of such cases happen while the patient is in his 40s or 50s.  On the bright side, who can prove you didn’t get lost or forgot your address?
