Can You Go On Disability For Diabetes?

Share on facebook

Diabetes is a serious medical condition. It affects about 25 million Americans. Diabetes can often remain well-controlled with the help of insulin and other medications. But for others it can cause some very serious symptoms that can be disrupting in the workplace. If you suffer from diabetes you may be experiencing fatigue, pain, or weakness and numbness in your hands or feet. Some people with diabetes have other severe conditions like vision problems that can result in blindness, frequent infections, or diabetic ulcers. These symptoms can make it difficult to work 8 hours a day 5 days a week. In order to qualify for disability you will need to show how these symptoms prevent you from working and your problems resulting from diabetes must have lasted or are expected to last for at least 12 months.

What Conditions Can Qualify A Person For Social Security Disability?

Social Security Disability benefits are no one’s “fix-all” if they are suffering from a physical or mental disability. However, SSD benefits may help the disabled person and his or her family battle the stresses associated with a disability and could result in getting necessary medical care under Medicare. But who is entitled to receive Social Security Disability benefits? To be eligible for Social Security Disability (SSDI) benefits, a person must have an impairment, either medical, psychological, or psychiatric in nature and that impairment must be severe enough that it prevents a disabled individual from working, or, if they continue to work, prevents the person from earning substantial money. Lastly, the impairment must last at least twelve calendar months, or be projected to last that long. Some conditions that may qualify for SSD benefits (as long as the other prongs of the test are met) include: Musculoskeletal problems including fractures, poorly healed bone breaks, soft tissue injuries, spinal arachnoiditis, arthritis, osteoarthrtis, rheumatoid arthritis, hip, neck, shoulder, ankle, wrist, back, or other joint problems, disc herniation, degenerative disc disease, spi Continue reading >>

    Can I Get Disability Benefits for Diabetes?

    If you have diabetes, Social Security disability benefits may be available. To determine whether you are disabled by diabetes, the Social Security Administration first considers whether your diabetes is severe enough to meet or equal a listing at Step 3 of the Sequential Evaluation Process.
    If your diabetes is not severe enough to equal or meet a listing, the Social Security Administration must assess your residual functional capacity (RFC) (the work you can still do, despite your diabetes), to determine whether you qualify for benefits at Step 4 and Step 5 of the Sequential Evaluation Process. See Residual Functional Capacity Assessment for Diabetes.

    How to Get Disability Benefits for Diabetes by Meeting a Listing
    To determine whether you are disabled at Step 3 of the Sequential Evaluation Process, the Social Security Administration will consider whether your diabetes is severe enough to meet or equal the diabetes listing.
    The Social Security Administration has developed a set of rules called Listing of Impairments for most common impairments. The listing for each impairment describes a degree of severity that the Social Security Administration presumes would prevent a person from performing substantial work. If your diabetes is severe enough to meet or equal the diabetes listing, you will be eligible for disability benefits.
    The listing for diabetes is 9.08, which has three parts: A, B, and C. You will be disabled if you meet either part A, part B, or Part C.

    Even if you don’t meet one of the diabetes listings, you may still be found disabled at Step 3 of the Sequential Evaluation Process. You may have a combination of impairments that together equal the severity of disability of a listing. For example, you may have autonomic neuropathy with hospitalizations for gastric paralysis or dizziness from low blood pressure related to autonomic insufficiency affecting the arterial vascular bed; or an enlarged heart, with coronary artery disease, etc

Can I Get Disability For Diabetes?

The short answer to the question is yes, there are people who receive Social Security disability for diabetes. However, they do not get disability just because they have been diagnosed with diabetes. And that makes sense because plenty of people who have diabetes work and lead pretty normal lives. People who receive disability due to diabetes generally receive it because their diabetes was uncontrolled for some period of time and it caused damage to their body. The symptoms from the damage cause the person to be unable to work and they qualify for disability. One of the most common complications of uncontrolled diabetes is diabetic neuropathy. The nerves in the hands and feet are damaged and you might feel pain, tingling or even numbness if the neuropathy is really severe. The nerve damage may cause you to be unable to use your hands for things like buttoning your shirt or tying your shoes. You may lose your balance easily and need a cane to walk if your feet are numb. Another complication of diabetes is diabetic retinopathy. This affects your vision and can permanently damage your eyesight. Other organs can be damaged by diabetes, including your kidneys. If your kidneys fail you w Continue reading >>

Obtaining Insurance For Diabetics By Steve Crawford

Four years ago when somebody told me they were a diabetic, I referred them to Fidelity Security, Boston Mutual, or Oxford Life. After all, they are the carriers who will take people with a dreaded disease like diabetes. I knew that in the underwriting manual it stated the insurance company could consider somebody with diabetes for a modified contract, however all the applications I had seen come in on people with the disease generally got declined. In 2000, I got diagnosed with the disease myself, and my understanding of what an insurance company looks for when they underwrite people with diabetes increased. This article is written for both people with the disease, and for agents looking to learn a bit more about how to help their diabetic clients obtain income protection. If you read this and get only one thing out of it, understand that obtaining disability insurance for diabetics is not easy. However if the agent and the client are both willing to put the time and effort into it, and are prepared to handle a few rejections, you can come out in the end with a solid contract. I don't remember the source, however I think it was WebMD, that reported 1 in 3 children inside the USA wi Continue reading >>
