Important to almost every disability applicant is the knowledge and experience that a qualified disability attorney may provide to help obtain approval of an application for disability benefits. Otherwise, any lack of understanding of the rules and regulations involved with a disability application may cause a denial of benefits. Better to know all of your options and proceed accordingly!
Applicants who have kidney disease that doesn’t meet one of the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) Listings of Impairments, may still qualify under certain facts. Individuals qualify if, over the prior year, they suffered congestive heart failure, hypertensive (high blood pressure), stroke or acute kidney failure requiring hemodialysis, and were hospitalized at least three times for these serious complications, at least 30 days apart within the one-year period.
Individuals who have had a kidney transplant are entitled to receive 12 months of disability benefits automatically. After this first year, the SSA makes an evaluation of ongoing disability eligibility based on an individual’s residual impairments. When it reviews any post-transplant improvement, it considers instances of kidney rejection, side effects of treatment with immunosuppressants and corticosteroids, systemic infections, neuropathy, as well as the deterioration of other organ systems.
An experienced disability attorney may ensure that any applicant fully takes advantage of the rules intended to help individuals obtain eligibility for disability benefits.
