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.
You may be able 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.
Below are some common autoimmune diseases for which you may get benefits:
- 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
- Systemic sclerosis
AIDS, HIV and Your Medical Records
The Social Security Administration approves you for benefits by reviewing the information in your medical records.
This makes it crucial that your medical 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.
We will gather thorough documentation of your treatment sources, dates of treatment, names of doctors, and the medical conditions with which you have been diagnosed.
This medical information is critical in these cases since you may have limited time.
