Diabetes and Disability – Applying and Getting Approved for Disability

Diabetes and Disability

If you are suffering from diabetes and are unable to work due to your symptoms associated with diabetes, then you may qualify for Social Security Disability. This does not mean you automatically get approved once you apply.  There are several factors that come into play that can determine if you may get approved or not.

If you are suffering from severe neuropathy, acidosis or retinopathy then you stand a better chance of getting approved.  Now if you have a disability that prevents you from working and you have diabetes, then diabetes will be taken into consideration in determining your eligibility.

If you find yourself still reading this, then you are probably one of the people that believes they may qualify for benefits.  If that is the case then let me help you get all the information you need to make a decision on what to do next.  Since diabetes is not a slam dunk – to automatically get approved for this type of disability, you need to make sure you have all your ducks in a row.  You are going to need to make sure you have all the proper documentation and medical records.

You can go to the Social Security Administration (SSA) office and apply for disability on your own, but it is often in your best interests to work with an advocate who specializes in disability.  Here is why.  It doesn’t cost you anything up front and if you don’t get approved you don’t pay.  If you do get approved, then the advocate gets pay a small amount of your back pay, nothing out of your pocket.  You then proceed to get your disability checks monthly with nothing else being paid to the advocate.  This is pretty much a win/win situation.
