It would depend on the definition of disabilty that you are covered under. They vary widely and anymore most policies have a rehabilitation provision where they can train you to do somehting which would enable you to work. I'm not sure about Social Security disability....that's a tough one to get when you have a fatal disease.

Remember, a lot of policies have limitations too on
'self reported' injuries. An example of this is back pain.
You say your back hurts, tests can rule out whether something is
there, but they can't 'measure' how much you hurt. Foot pain would
be the same thing. I look NORMAL (even on my worst days) but the
pain never goes away. You can't measure that though.
