Overcoming Barriers to a Successful Claim
Social Security Disability benefits related to Lupus are difficult, in part, because some of the factors that impact one's ability to function in daily life are the result of a disease that cannot be viewed through the lenses of a microscope, or seen on an x-ray.
Remember, the Social Security Administration (SSA) is focused on function, not on a diagnosis. Therefore, in all disability claims involving Lupus, it is important to document how this debilitating disease impacts your daily life by making you unable to function or to perform ordinary tasks that most people take for granted.
Documentation Required for a Successful Lupus Claim
One way to establish your claim is through the documentation provided in your medical records. It is imperative that all of your medical records demonstrate a consistency of complaints common to your disease, such as the chronic fatigue and pain often associated with Lupus. This will help establish a specific pattern regarding your debilitating illness that will be apparent when the SSA reviews your case.
Additionally, you will need to show that due to the constant physical fatigue, you are unable to perform basic tasks such as housework, travel to and from appointments, shopping, and other social functions.
We understand how difficult it can be to grapple with colossal medical and governmental systems such as the Social Security Administration, especially when you are already struggling with the symptoms of a debilitating illness. And we are aware that establishing the validity of your claim can be extremely time-consuming.
However, it is essential that the medical professionals associated with your case are supportive during the process and that they provide the documentation that is necessary to assist you in proving your claim. Based on our familiarity with the process, we will be able to facilitate the vital cooperation and support you will need from your medical providers during the process of establishing your claim for benefits related to Lupus.
