Can You Qualify for Social Security Disability with an Immune Disorder?

When your medical condition stops you from working, you need to talk with a Los Angeles disability benefits attorney to find out if you can qualify for Social Security Disability income. Immune disorders can potentially qualify you for benefits, so if you have an immune disorder, it is important to learn the Social Security Disability rules so you can determine if you will be able to receive disability income to support yourself and your loved ones. 

Qualifying for Social Security Disability Benefits with an Immune Disorder

There are certain specific criteria you have to meet to get disability benefits based on your immune disorder. Your disorder must stop you from doing any job you're qualified for and you cannot be engaged in substantial gainful activity, which is defined as earning a certain level of income. Your condition also has to be long-term.

If you meet these basic criteria, you'll still need to prove your immune disorder is severe enough to qualify you for benefits. You can do this by showing you have a disorder listed on the Social Security Administration's listing of impairments, which is informally called the blue book. You'll also have to show you experience specific symptoms associated with that disorder. You could also show you have a disorder equivalent in severity to a listed condition. 

Immune disorders are listed in section 14.00 of Part A of the blue book for adults. Some of the listed disorders include Systemic lupus erythematosus and Systemic sclerosis (scleroderma), among others.

If you have these conditions, another listed condition, or any immune disorder severe enough to stop you from working, you should reach out to a Los Angeles disability benefits attorney for help fighting for benefits.

Can You Qualify for Social Security Disability with a Mental Disorder

Having a mental disorder can be frustrating to cope with, as managing your condition is often difficult. Unfortunately, your disorder may also interfere with your professional life and prevent you from having a job. 

If you have found that your mental disorder makes it impossible for you to work, you should reach out to a Los Angeles disability benefits lawyer. An attorney can help you to determine if you are likely to qualify for Social Security disability benefits. If you meet the criteria for eligibility, your attorney can also provide the help that you need to submit your application and prove the severity of your mental disorder. 

Qualifying for Social Security Disability with a Mental Disorder

Mental disorders are treated just the same as any other condition by the Social Security Administration. That means you have to prove your disorder is severe and makes it impossible for you to have any job you'd be qualified for.

The Social Security has a "blue book," which lists different kinds of impairments that are usually severe enough to make you eligible to receive disability benefits. Mental disorders are listed within section 12.00 of the blue book.

If your mental disorder is found within section 12.00, you'll need to determine if you can prove you have the specific symptoms required to get benefits. If it's not listed, you could still potentially get disability income from the Social Security Administration but would have to prove it is medically equivalent in severity. 

Some of the mental disorders listed in section 12.00 include schizophrenia, cognitive disorders, depression, bipolar syndrome, and intellectual disorders. If you have been diagnosed with these or other listed conditions, or if you have other severe mental problems, you should reach out to a Los Angeles disability benefits attorney for help today.

Can You Qualify for Social Security Disability with a Endocrine Disorder

An endocrine disorder can make working impossible, leaving you worried about how to support your family. The good news is, there are many endocrine disorders that can qualify you for Social Security Disability benefits.

Social Security Disability can give you the peace of mind of knowing you have monthly income coming in. However, qualifying for benefits is difficult even when you have a covered disorder because the Social Security Administration is strict in which applications it approves and more than half of all claims for benefits are denied.

A Los Angeles disability benefits lawyer can provide you with help proving your endocrine disorder should make you eligible for disability income. Contact an attorney today to get the assistance you need to maximize your chances of a successful benefits application. 

Qualifying for Social Security Disability Benefits With an Endocrine Disorder

To determine if you can qualify for Social Security Disability income on the basis of your endocrine disorder, you will first need to determine whether your condition is listed in the blue book, which is the informal name of a listing of impairments used by Social Security when determining benefits eligibility.

Endocrine disorders for adults are covered in Section 9.00 of Part A of the blue book. The Social Security Administration explains within the blue book the specific endocrine disorders which can potentially allow you to obtain benefits. This includes pituitary gland disorders, thyroid disorders, and adrenal gland disorders, among others. For each particular condition, the Social Security Administration also specifies the specific symptoms you must have for that particular disorder in order to make you eligible for coverage. 

Even when your condition should be covered, you can face challenges in getting your application approved because of the high denial rate in applying for benefits. A Los Angeles disability benefits attorney can help, so give us a call today.

Can You Qualify for Social Security Disability with a Hematological Disorder?

Hematological disorders can sometimes be cancerous, but there are hematological disorders that are not cancer but that can still cause significant impairments.

If you suffer from one of these disorders, you may be unable to work. Those who cannot work due to their disorder should reach out to a Los Angeles disability benefits lawyer for assistance.

You may be entitled to receive Social Security Disability income and an attorney can help you to determine if you are entitled to benefits.

If you can qualify for disability income, your attorney can also help you to apply for benefits and maximize your chances of approval. 

Qualifying for Social Security Disability with a Hematological Disorder

To determine if you can qualify for Social Security Disability on the basis of your hematological disorder, you will need to refer to Social Security's listing of impairments, which is often called the "blue book."

If you have a listed condition in the blue book, and associated symptoms, you can usually obtain disability benefits. If your condition is not listed, you can obtain benefits only if you can prove your disorder is as severe as those listed.

Section 3.00 of Part A of the blue book provides information on hematological disorders affecting adults that are non-cancerous and that could result in you qualifying for disability benefits. 

Many different kinds of hematological disorders are covered within section 3.00, including disorders of thrombosis and hemostasis; bone marrow failure; and hemolytic anemias.

If you have these or other listed disorders and you can prove both that you have required symptoms and that your disorder has or will prevent you from working over the long-term, you should be able to get benefits. Contact a disability benefits lawyer in Los Angeles for help making your claim so you can get the income you need.

Can You Qualify for Social Security Disability with a Respiratory Disorder

If you have a respiratory disorder that prevents you from working, you are probably worried about how you will support yourself and your loved ones. 

Depending upon the nature of your respiratory disorder, you may be able to qualify for Social Security Disability benefits. However, your ability to get benefits will vary depending upon the nature of your disorder, how severe it is, and whether it has caused you to be too disabled to work. Your condition must also be a long-term one. 

A Los Angeles disability benefits lawyer can help you to determine whether you can qualify for benefits based on a respiratory disorder, so contact an attorney for help as soon as possible. 

Qualifying for Disability Benefits on the Basis of a Respiratory Disorder

In order to qualify for Social Security Disability benefits, you will need to prove you have a medical condition that is either listed on Social Security's listing of impairments or that is medically equivalent to listed conditions.

The listing of impairments is sometimes informally called the "blue book." Respiratory disorders are covered within section 3.00 of the blue book. 

There are many different respiratory disorders addressed in section 3.00 including asthma, cystic fibrosis, and bronchiectasis, among others. 

If your condition is listed, you should determine if you have the required symptoms for that particular condition. If you do, and if you can prove your condition with those associated symptoms stops you from working, you should get benefits. If your condition isn't listed or you don't have the required symptoms, you'll have to prove your medically problems are equally impairing.

A Los Angeles disability benefits attorney can help you to present evidence that your respiratory condition has caused you to be sufficiently disabled, so give us a call today for help trying to claim Social Security disability income.
