    Hi @Andre2 welcome to the community! Disability has a whole range of meanings. For me, disability is an illness or a group of illnesses which prevent you from carrying out daily activities on a regular/daily basis. I'm sure members of our community will share their thoughts too. Let us know if we can help you further :)

    Hi @Andre2 and welcome

    In theory a disability is any physical or mental condition that prevents you from doing the same things as someone that does not have that or any other condition ie. fit and healthy.
    Whether a condition or disability is considered for the purpose of claiming benefit will depend on how it affects your functionality and or mobility
