Our diabetes disability lawyer in Michigan can assess your situation and determine the best way to achieve your goals.

Does Diabetes Qualify for Social Security Disability?

Diabetes is no longer listed on the Social Security Administration site as sole qualifying condition. So demonstrating that you have diabetes will not automatically qualify your for benefits. However, if you can prove that you have suffered from complications stemming from your diabetes, you may be eligible to receive benefits. You can read more about these qualifying complications below.

What Is Needed to Qualify for Social Security with Diabetes?

To qualify for benefits, you need to be “disabled.” The Social Security Administration (SSA) has detailed standards as to what constitutes “disabled,” and establishing disability to the SSA’s satisfaction can be complicated.

To establish disability and receive Social Security benefits for diabetes, the SSA accepts diabetes mellitus (classified as an endocrine system disorder) with at least one of the following:

  • Neuropathy (nerve damage) demonstrated by disorganization of motor functions in two extremities that results in the hindrance of movements, gait, or station
  • Acidosis that occurs at least once every two months, with supporting documentation of appropriate blood chemical tests
  • Retinitis proliferans with loss of visual acuity, contraction of the visual field, or loss of visual efficiency

The standards are complicated medically, and the procedures are complicated legally. Without extensive experience, it is easy to get overwhelmed by the technical language and requirements that go into the Social Security process.

The Social Security lawyers of the law firm of Adler Firm, PLLC know how to get SSDI payments for diabetes. We have been helping disabled clients through this process for more than 30 years. We understand the medical language and how to use it in the application, the hearings, and the appeals stages of the Social Security process. Let us help you obtain the benefits you need.
