Justipedia explains Listing of Impairments
Any listings made must be backed by evidence that the impairment has persisted or is expected to persist for at least 12 months straight. However, most people who fill out a listing of impairment suffer from ailments that are permanent and are expected to result in death. The official Listing of Impairments can be found in the Code of Federal Regulations in Appendix 1, Subpart P, Part 404. This includes forms for both children (under 18) and adults.
