Rheumatoid Arthritis and Disability Benefits

Arthritis And Receiving Disability Benefits

Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disorder and people who have it may qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. This disorder typically affects the small joints in your hands and feet. Unlike the wear-and-tear damage of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis affects the lining of your joints, causing a painful swelling that can eventually result in bone erosion and joint deformity. If you have difficulty holding onto objects, swelling in your joints and pain related to this arthritis, then this can also be a limiting factor that prevents you from being able to perform a job efficiently.

If the arthritis is severe to the point that your daily life and work activities are affected, then you may qualify for SSDI.
