Do Diabetics Qualify For Social Security Disability?

Diabetes is often a contributing factor to a disability. As a progressive disease, its effects can grow more severe over time, affecting the circulatory system, eyesight and the ability to use legs, hands and feet. Diabetes sufferers may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits, but they must first document the impact the disease and its symptoms have on their ability to work.

Serving Clients Throughout North Carolina

At Ayers, Whitlow & Dressler in Charlotte, we provide results-oriented representation for people whose diabetes disability claims have been denied. We are committed to helping our clients obtain the benefits that can make a positive difference in their lives. Attorney Robert A. Whitlow understands the information the Social Security Administration needs to know regarding diabetes disability claims and how to gather additional information in support of claims. Our goal will be to obtain the benefits you need as efficiently as is possible.

Documenting The Effects Of Diabetes And Neuropathy

The fact that you have diabetes does not qualify you for SSDI benefits. You must show to the satisfaction of the Social Security Administration that your condition impairs your ability to earn a living.

In your case, we will collect important medical information about your condition and how it affects your ability to perform work tasks. If your medical record is not complete, we can advise you how to better communicate with your doctor regarding the effects that diabetes has on your physical abilities. Getting this information into your medical record can play an important role in obtaining SSDI benefits.
