Michigan Obesity Benefits Attorney
Can You Get SSDI or SSI Benefits for Obesity?
Contracting an illness or suffering an injury that renders you unable to work and bring in an income for you and your family can be an extremely frightening experience.
Fortunately, the government provides a safety net with programs intended to help disabled people unable to work — Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). These programs are extremely valuable to people suffering from obesity or other physical impairments, but the process of filing for and obtaining benefits can be extremely difficult.
Let us help you. At Adler Firm, PLLC, in Detroit and Traverse City, we have more than 30 years of legal experience helping our Michigan clients obtain Social Security benefits. Our obesity Social Security benefits attorney understands the complicated medical language required to establish “disability” according the definition of the Social Security Administration (SSA), and we understand the legal complications involved in the Social Security process.
Obesity and Social Security Disability Claims
Obesity is a serious problem in itself, and it is also linked to many other serious physical impairments, including:
- Hypertension/high blood pressure
- Joint problems
- Respiratory problems
The SSA has a strict definition of “disability,” and it is difficult to establish that a person suffering from obesity truly is disabled according to this definition. We know how to get SSDI payments for obesity.
If you are truly unable to work and provide for yourself and your family, the benefits that come from Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income are too important; do not try to do it yourself. Talk with our lawyer about the process and how we can help you.
