Social Security benefits and immune disorders

When you are suffering from an immune disorder, some of the most basic tasks can become seemingly impossible. Depending on the type of immune disorder you are suffering from, you may feel fatigued, anxious, depressed and suffer from fever. Immune disorders have the potential to affect all organs and muscles, causing weakness and a whole variety of illnesses.

How to prove your disability

Being defined as suffering from a disability is a very broad term. It can mean that you are either physically or mentally impaired to the point that you are unable to carry out some essential daily activities. If you are struggling to work because of your disability, it is likely that you will want to make a claim for Supplemental Security Income (SSI). However, in order to do this successfully, you will have to be able to prove your disability.

Next steps after a denied Social Security Disability claim

As an employee or a former employee, you have paid toward disability insurance through your taxes all of your working life. It is one of the key protections offered to you by the Social Security Administration. These benefits help ensure that if you are to fall ill, become disabled as a result and need to stop working, you can have some income to support yourself as a disabled person.

Social Security Disability and depression

If a person has a physical disability that prevents him or her from being able to work, he or she is likely to be entitled to Social Security Disability (SSDI). This is also true for people that suffer from mental illnesses. The problem with mental illnesses is that it often carries a stigma where sufferers struggle to acknowledge their illness, they feel ashamed to tell people about it and furthermore, it can be more difficult to diagnose than many physical illnesses. But as a sufferer of a mental illness such as depression, it is important to remember that you are just as much entitled to help, care and support as any other sufferer of an illness.

The steps to take if you’ve been refused benefits

It is extremely common for a Social Security application to be denied for the first time -- this occurs in over 50 percent of cases. However, if you seek to appeal the decision, you are reasonably likely to be successful. You must make sure that you are well-prepared, however, to make a good case, and know what the acceptance criteria is.

Supplemental security income can help disabled applicants

Disability insurance is a vital part of the safety net for American workers and citizens. The sources of funding are as diverse as the reasons for applying for disability coverage, so applicants should understand the basic sources and limits of benefits.
