Let Our Experienced Missouri Disability Attorneys Help You
If you’re living with anemia, you know how it can affect your whole body and, in turn, your whole life. Is Anemia a disability that qualifies for Social Security Disability Income?
Generally, anemia is a condition in which your blood doesn’t produce enough red blood cells to carry oxygen to different parts of your body. That means it can cause a wide range of symptoms.
In many cases, it’s bad enough to make working impossible. Social Security Disability benefits could be the financial lifeline you need if you’ve been forced out of your full-time job. The monthly checks can help you focus on your health, not your bills.
But winning these benefits can be extremely difficult. Most first-time applicants are denied.
At the Law Offices of Karen Kraus Bill, we know how daunting—and disheartening—this process can become. We’re here to help.
If you’re in Columbia, Jefferson City, Fulton, or anywhere in Mid-Missouri and need help getting benefits, call us today.
Common Symptoms That Could Qualify for Disability with Anemia
In 2015, Social Security updated its standards to include anemia in a group with other blood disorders. Some symptoms they consider to qualify for disability benefits:
- Chronic pain
- Severe fatigue
- Night sweats
- Joint or muscle swelling
- Shortness of breath
- Hair loss
If your symptoms aren’t listed above, don’t lose hope. Each case of anemia is unique, and the symptoms vary from person to person. To qualify, you’ll need to show clear proof that at least one of the following is occurring:
- Limitation of daily living activities
- Limitation in maintaining social functioning
- Limitation in completing tasks due to condition
We know this can all be overwhelming. We can answer any questions you may have, and we’ll even evaluate your case at no charge to you.
What You Need to Win Your Disability Claim with Anemia
Sadly, you can’t just tell Social Security you have anemia and need disability benefits. You’ll have to prove it, with clear and thorough evidence.
What you’ll have to include:
- Doctor’s reports
- Hospital records
- Treatment details
- Supporting testimonials from coworkers, friends and family
