Disability Benefits Available for All Types of Medical Conditions
Cancer, mental illness, musculoskeletal disorders, immune system disorders and myriad other injuries and illnesses can leave you unable to make it through a full day of work. If you are in this situation, you may be eligible for federal disability benefits. Depending on your circumstances, either the Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) programs may provide you with the financial security you need.
At the Rochester NY Law Offices of Kenneth Hiller, PLLC, you will work with experienced disability benefits attorneys who understand how to work with doctors to provide the Social Security Administration (SSA) with a complete medical record that shows the extent of your impairment and how it prevents you from working.
Representation for a Wide Range of Physical and Mental Illnesses
Our Rochester, NY attorneys have helped clients who have a wide range of impairments, including impairments that are particularly challenging to prove. Our clients have had impairments such as:
- Spinal injuries and back and neck pain
- Chronic obstructive lung disease and asthma
- Multiple sclerosis
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Irritable bowel syndrome and Crohn’s disease
- Orthopedic injuries, including joint pain
- Depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and other mental health conditions
- Rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and Lyme disease
- Many other diseases, disorders, illnesses and injuries
The requirements for proving your claim for benefits may depend on the type of impairment you have. The SSA maintains a listing of impairments that it recognizes will cause disability if they are severe enough. The list is not exhaustive, however, and if you are prevented from working by an illness that is not on the list, you can still qualify for benefits. Any condition that prevents you from working can qualify for SSD or SSDI.
