Social Security Disability Claims for Autoimmune Diseases including: HIV, AIDS, Lupus, Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
An autoimmune disease is one in which the immune system mistakes its own tissues for foreign tissue and makes an inappropriate attack. When your immune system doesn't work properly, you are "immunosuppressed" and can easily become too sick to continue working.
If this happens, you have options. You may be able to work with an attorney or an advocate at Binder & Binder® to file a successful Social Security Disability claim for early payment of monthly Social Security Disability benefits or insurance through the SSA as a result of your autoimmune disease.
At Binder & Binder®, we represent clients suffering from many different illnesses attacking their immune systems. Some of these autoimmune diseases are listed below:
- HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus)
- RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy)
- Some forms of Arthritis
- Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS/CFIDS)
- Connective tissue disorder
- Multiple chemical sensitivity
- Sjogren's syndrome
- Raynaud's disease
AIDS, HIV and Your Medical Record
If the SSA approves you for benefits, it does so by reviewing the information found in your medical record. For this reason, it is important that your records document the limiting effects of your autoimmune disease. Medical record documentation of doctors' appointments, medications and treatment, and treating doctors' opinions is critical to proving you are eligible for autoimmune disease disability benefits.
When helping you apply for Social Security Disability insurance or benefits, the Social Security Disability Advocates at Binder & Binder® gather a full listing of your treatment sources, dates of treatment, names of doctors and the medical conditions with which you have been diagnosed. This medical information is often critical in these cases, since you may have limited time and the pain can be so severe.
