Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Social Security Disability Benefits

PTSD and the Social Security Administration

Sometimes, a traumatic experience leaves such a lasting impact on your life that you can't work, even though that's what you want to do. If you've been diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and your doctor says you can't work anymore, or you're trying to hold down a job and are really struggling, talk to us at Binder & Binder® about your options.

We represent many members of the military who have returned from Iraq and Afghanistan. We'll deal with the government; you have enough to worry about.

At Binder & Binder® we can help you understand those requirements, and see to it that your application is filed correctly. You may also be able to have your SSD or SSI disability claim approved through a medical vocational allowance if a disability adjudicator finds that your condition is severe. This may be the case if you cannot return to your past work or switch to another line of work.

Bipolar Disorder As A Qualifying Condition For SSD

Social Security Disability Attorneys Representing Individuals With Bipolar Disorder

If you have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, you may be able to receive Social Security Disability benefits if the symptoms meet the Social Security Administration's criteria, or if there is a medical vocational disability approval. At Binder & Binder®, we can help.


About Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder is a mental disorder that involves a disturbance in mood. It is not just one mood disorder, but a category of many mood disorders. Classifications of bipolar disorder include Bipolar I, Bipolar II, Bipolar NOS and Cyclothymia.

Previously known as manic-depressive disorder or manic depression, bipolar disorder involves periods of extreme happiness (mania) followed by periods of extreme depression that can take over a person's entire life.

  • Manic episodes are periods of extreme happiness or elation. People experiencing a manic episode may talk quickly and have a short attention span with their thoughts racing from one thing to another. They may be unable to sleep and do things they ordinarily would not do. They may also develop grandiose plans or delusional ideas about themselves.
  • When manic episodes end, depressive episodes may set in. These episodes of deep sadness may seem overwhelming. Sufferers can experience fatigue, guilt, anger, hopelessness or anxiety. They may not be able to sleep and may lose interest in things that were once important to them.

While bipolar disorder can be treated by counseling, therapy and medications including anti-psychotic medications or mood stabilizers like lithium, not every treatment is effective. If you suffer from bipolar disorder and have trouble working despite treatment, you may need to seek Social Security Disability benefits.

If you are suffering from a disability or bipolar disorder and your doctor says you can't work anymore, talk with us at Binder & Binder®. Our Social Security Disability advocates can answer your questions you might have about mental health disability benefits and Social Security Disability including what constitutes a disability, whether your impairment might be significant enough to be deemed disabling by the Social Security Administration and whether you are eligible for benefits.

Social Security Disability Benefits And Major Depressive Disorder

When Depression Keeps You Our Of Work

Sometimes depression can be so severe that it keeps you out of work. This is true even if you've tried antidepressants, or therapy, or every other kind of treatment out there. It's true if you'd actually rather be working than suffering from depression. But you simply can't.

If you have been diagnosed with major depressive disorder and your doctor says you can't work anymore, it may be time to talk to Binder & Binder® about Social Security Disability benefits.


About Depression and Applying for SSD or SSI

Depression is not specifically listed in the Social Security Administration's impairment listing manual, but you may still be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits if your depression is severe. To qualify for SSD or SSI benefits on the basis of depression, your medical records must document the symptoms of depression and the effect that depression has had on your life:

  • Limiting your activities of daily living
  • Making it difficult for you to function socially
  • Making it difficult for you to concentrate, do daily activities or keep up -with work
  • Occurring over and over again, and getting worse, with each episode having extended duration

If you do not meet these criteria, you may still qualify for Social Security Disability based on your residual functional capacity, age and education. The best way to learn about your options is to talk with an attorney at Binder & Binder®. We will help you by organizing the medical documentation and preparing your SSD application, while offering compassion and understanding in the process.

If you are suffering from a disability or major depressive disorder and your doctor says you can't work anymore, talk with us at Binder & Binder®.

Orthopedic Injury Disability

Musculoskeletal Disorders: Problems with bones, Joints and Tissues

At Binder & Binder®, we help clients with many different types of orthopedic injuries (injuries to the musculoskeletal system). These include injuries to bones, muscle and joints. Regardless of the orthopedic injury or disability you experience - even if you don't see it listed on our Web site or the Social Security Disability list of impairments - we may be able to help you get the disability benefits necessary to support your family and make ends meet.

Social Security benefits are part of what is essentially an insurance policy that provides for basic financial and medical needs for workers when their working lives are interrupted. Benefits can also serve as a safety net for fellow Americans that have a disability. If an orthopedic injury or disability has ended your working life sooner than expected, you may be eligible for the early payment of monthly benefits that you would ordinarily have received in your retirement.

Our clients have had many different kinds of orthopedic injuries that kept them out of work, but Binder & Binder® was able to win their claims and get them the benefits they needed. Our past clients have suffered many of the following injuries:

  • Back injuries
  • Hip injuries
  • Non-union of a fracture
  • Failed spinal surgery
  • Disorders of the spine
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Degenerative joint disease
  • Curvature of the spine
  • Leg, Knee and Ankle Injuries/Disorders

Leg, Knee & Ankle Disorders and Injuries

When Joint Damage Keeps You Out Of Work For A Year Or More

At Binder & Binder®, we represent clients throughout the United States in Social Security Disability matters related to many different kinds of joint damage. Our clients are hard-working people who want to provide for themselves and their families, but cannot, due to a disabling condition that keeps them out of work for a year or more.

Our attorneys represent people with many different types of injuries, disorders and chronic pain that have affected their legs, knees, ankles and joints, including the conditions listed below:

  • Multiple Joint Disease
  • Amputation
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Osteomyelitis / septic arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
Knowing When to Apply for SSD or SSI Benefits

You should apply for Social Security Disability benefits as soon as you and your doctors agree that your disability is going to last a full year. You are not eligible for Social Security Disability benefits if your joint damage doesn't last a full year, so many people have to wait to see what happens with their medical conditions. Others who have been struggling to work should apply as soon as they stop working.

If you are suffering from a disability or leg, knee or ankle disorders and your doctor says you can't work anymore, talk with us at Binder & Binder®.

Hip Injuries

Binder & Binder® Representing The Victims of Many Types Of Hip Injuries

At Binder & Binder®, we represent the victims of many different types of hip injuries. Some of these injuries occurred suddenly in an accident, like a workplace accident or car crash. Others occurred over time, as the body deteriorated. We have worked with clients who had various types of hip injuries including:

  • Failed hip replacement
  • Fractured pelvis
  • Hip injury
  • Hip pain
The Importance of Medical Reports

You've probably heard that the three most important factors in real estate are "location, location and location." In proving your hip injury disability case, the three most important factors are "medicals, medicals and medicals." By far, the most important part of your "medicals" is a report from your own treating physician.

At Binder & Binder®, we have found that powerful "medicals" can turn a close case into one that is an almost-certain win. Good reports contain a lot of information, including the complete history of your condition; all clinical findings and whatever laboratory results that support the clinical observations about your hip injury. Reports should conclude with the diagnosis, the prognosis and a clear statement of your degree of disability. We will gather this type of documentation and present it with your application.

If you are suffering from a disability or hip injuries and your doctor says you can't work anymore, talk with us at Binder & Binder®. Our Social Security Disability advocates can answer your questions you might have about mental health disability benefits and Social Security Disability including what constitutes a disability, whether your impairment might be significant enough to be deemed disabling by the Social Security Administration and whether you are eligible for benefits.

Arm Injuries

When An Arm Injury Prevents You From Working

Especially if you've worked all your life, an arm injury that prevents you from working can be life changing. Most jobs require use of both hands and arms. AN injury to a dominant hand is more important that to the non-dominant hand. And age is a factor here, too. As you age, it is hard to adapt to using only one arm—and pain is a big issue as well. What will you do if you can't work? And how will you make ends meet? Luckily, we have a plan.

Proving that your arm injury is a disability is our attorneys’ responsibility once you hire us.

If you have an arm injury and you would like to obtain Social Security Disability benefits, your doctor must state that you are unable to work a normal, five-day-a-week, eight-hour-a-day job. Your doctor's opinion must be supported by "medically acceptable clinical and laboratory findings." Unfortunately, many genuinely disabling conditions are difficult to diagnose through objective testing.

Your disability must last or be expected to last for at least one year in order for you to qualify for Social Security Disability. This is a strict requirement of the Social Security Administration.

If you are suffering from a disability or arm injuries and your doctor says you can't work anymore, talk with us at Binder & Binder®. Our Social Security Disability advocates can answer your questions you might have about mental health disability benefits and Social Security Disability including what constitutes a disability, whether your impairment might be significant enough to be deemed disabling by the Social Security Administration and whether you are eligible for benefits.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel And Other Repetitive Stress Injuries

Many people think that carpal tunnel syndrome only comes from typing on keyboards. It only happens if you type day after day, for year after year, right? Not really. People from many different occupations develop carpal tunnel syndrome each year. These include factory workers, workers on loading docks and grocery store clerks.

At Binder & Binder®, these injured workers become our clients. We understand how they feel when they can't work anymore, and how they struggle to make ends meet. We help them file successful Social Security Disability claims.

Our record of success stems from the way we handle all cases, including carpal tunnel cases and other repetitive stress disorders. We listen carefully to what you have to say and we win.


The Importance of Medical Records

Disability approvals are usually based on the information found in your medical record. For this reason, it is important that your records document the limiting effects of your medical condition. Unlike most lawyers, we get involved early in the process to help you fill out your disability application.

When helping you apply for disability, we gather a full listing of your treatment sources, dates of treatment, names of doctors and the medical conditions with which you have been diagnosed. This medical information is critical in carpal tunnel cases, since the government is often skeptical about the pain you suffer with carpal tunnel syndrome.

If you are suffering from a disability or carpal tunnel syndrome and your doctor says you can't work anymore, talk with us at Binder & Binder®. Our Social Security Disability advocates can answer your questions you might have about mental health disability benefits and Social Security Disability including what constitutes a disability, whether your impairment might be significant enough to be deemed disabling by the Social Security Administration and whether you are eligible for benefits.

Back Injuries

When A Back Injury Prevents You From Working

Anyone who has ever experienced severe back pain or a spinal cord injury knows how debilitating it can be. Sometimes, it can be so bad that there is no way a person could return to work — even if they wanted to (and often they really do).

At the Law Office of Charles E. Binder and Harry J. Binder, we understand what it means to have back pain so severe that you can't do the kind of work you're used to doing. Whether this work was heavy construction or general office work, the pain can be so intense that you need another option, like Social Security Disability benefits. At the Law Office of Charles E. Binder and Harry J. Binder, we can win benefits for clients who suffer from back injury.


The Social Security Administration and Back Pain

Unfortunately, the Social Security Administration has gained a reputation for being very dismissive of back injury cases. One sees many decisions saying a back injury is not painful or limiting despite strong opinions by examining doctors. And still, the Social Security Administration often does not take the pain caused by back injuries seriously.

At the Law Office of Charles E. Binder and Harry J. Binder, we don't let the government dismiss our clients' back injuries so easily. We fight hard for the people we represent. No matter where you are or what type of back pain you have, when you're a client of the Law Office of Charles E. Binder and Harry J. Binder, you can trust in this: We'll deal with the government. You have enough to worry about.

We help people with many different kinds of back injuries and pain including:

  • Bulging disc injuries, including herniated discs, pinched nerves and bulging discs
  • Upper or lower back pain, leg pain, neck pain or other symptoms
  • Cervical spine impairment
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Herniated disc
  • Lumbar spine impairment
  • Severe back pain
  • Spinal meningitis
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Unsuccessful back surgery
  • Other spinal disorders

If you are suffering from a disability or back injuries and your doctor says you can't work anymore, talk with us at Binder & Binder®. Our Social Security Disability advocates can answer your questions you might have about mental health disability benefits and Social Security Disability including what constitutes a disability, whether your impairment might be significant enough to be deemed disabling by the Social Security Administration and whether you are eligible for benefits.

Neurological Disorders Social Security Disability Claims Attorneys

Neurological Disorders and SSD Eligibility

Your neurological disorder has gotten worse, and you can't pretend the pain doesn't exist anymore. You've been working all your life, but your doctor says you can't anymore. Talk with us at Binder & Binder® about your options for neurological disorder disability benefits. Our attorneys are ready to help you determine your Social Security Disability eligibility, file your application and prove your claim.

Social Security Disability benefits are available to people with many different kinds of neurological disorders including:

  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Seizures / seizure disorder
  • Myasthenia gravis
  • Neuropathy, including peripheral neuropathy
  • Stroke (CVA, cerebrovascular accident)
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Neurological disorders related to spinal disorders

Whatever the type, neurological disorders can be very debilitating - debilitating enough to be considered a disability. A neurological disorder of the limbs can lead to amputations and infections. Neurological disorders can also lead to other symptoms that are so severe they keep you out of work.


Is My Neurological Disorder a Disability?

The Social Security Administration has a special definition of disability. According to the SSA, a disability is any medical condition that is expected to prevent you from working at a regular full-time job for at least 12 months.

Disability under Social Security regulations is evaluated based on your inability to work. The SSA considers you disabled when you cannot do work that you did previously and you cannot adjust to other work because of your medical conditions. Neurological disorders can be the basis for a finding of disability under SSA regulations. We can take care of the work of filing and proving your neurological disorder disability benefits claim.

If you are suffering from a disability or neurological disorders and your doctor says you can't work anymore, talk with us at Binder & Binder®. Our Social Security Disability advocates can answer your questions you might have about mental health disability benefits and Social Security Disability including what constitutes a disability, whether your impairment might be significant enough to be deemed disabling by the Social Security Administration and whether you are eligible for benefits.

Sleep Disorders SSD Benefits Attorneys

Sleep Disorder Social Security Disability Claims

If you are struggling with a sleep disorder, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits . But first you need a strong attorney on your side: Binder & Binder®

We understand how serious a sleep disorder can be. Obstructive Sleep Apnea can lead to excessive daytime somnolence, narcolepsy and even heart disease. Not getting a restful sleep could impair your ability to concentrate, and your judgment. You might even be a danger to yourself or coworkers.

SSD benefits for sleep disorders are almost a government secret. The government has made winning sleep disorder disability benefits an extremely difficult and time-consuming process. People who are legitimately disabled are routinely denied. Many Social Security Disability applicants become so discouraged and intimidated that they eventually give up on filing for Social Security Disability for their sleep disorders.


Don't Give Up! Don't Ever Give Up!

At Binder & Binder®, we work with the government so that you don't have to. We understand the frustration our clients feel when filing sleep disorder disability claims, and we go to great lengths to help them get the successful results that they need.

Our attorneys and staff handle many different types of sleep disorders with different symptoms and effects on the lives of our clients. From sleep apnea to insomnia, if you have documented trouble sleeping, you could qualify for sleep disorder disability benefits.

If you are suffering from a disability or sleep disorders and your doctor says you can't work anymore, talk with us at Binder & Binder®.

Fibromyalgia Social Security Disability Claims Attorneys

Fibromyalgia And SSA Disability Requirements

Fibromyalgia (sometimes referred to as fibromyositis) can be a challenging case to prove before the Social Security Administration, but at Binder & Binder®, we are ready to fight for our clients. We have achieved a record of success in winning disability cases for those who have fibromyalgia, as well as many other disabling conditions.

Unfortunately, there is no diagnostic test for Fibromyalgia. The diagnosis is one of exclusion. This means that your doctor may have ruled out other diagnoses and your symptoms match those of a Fibromyalgia diagnosis. The disease is marked by long-term pain throughout the body, including the muscles, joints and soft tissue. Sufferers often feel extreme fatigue, joint stiffness, sleep disturbance and often depression - so much so that they cannot hold down a normal, competitive five-day-a-week, eight-hour-a-day job.


Fibromyalgia and the SSA

A fibromyalgia diagnosis can challenge those trying to get SSD benefits. One is the nature of the disease and disability. Fibromyalgia and its causes are not yet clearly understood, so sometimes examiners are unable to classify these cases, and sometimes doubts are raised about its existence. If your diagnosis of fibromyalgia is keeping you from working, the Social Security Disability attorneys at Binder & Binder® may be able to help.

Many of our clients suffer with fibromyalgia in addition to another serious illness or disability, like orthopedic injuries or other musculoskeletal problems. If you suffer from more than one illness or type of pain, we will make sure to keep the complete picture in perspective when helping you fill out your Social Security Disability forms. This will increase your chance of winning your disability benefits.

Medical record documentation of doctor's appointments, medications and treatment, and treating doctors' opinions are essential to proving you are actually affected by fibromyalgia and eligible for fibromyalgia disability benefits. A Social Security Disability Attorney from Binder & Binder® can advise you on what sort of documentation you need to win your fibromyalgia disability benefits claim.

If you are suffering from a disability or fibromyalgia and your doctor says you can't work anymore, talk with us at Binder & Binder®. Our Social Security Disability advocates can answer your questions you might have about mental health disability benefits and Social Security Disability including what constitutes a disability, whether your impairment might be significant enough to be deemed disabling by the Social Security Administration and whether you are eligible for benefits.

SSD Claims Attorneys Representing Individuals with Severe Headaches as a Disability

Severe Headaches That Impair Your Ability To Work Could Classify As A Disability

Everyone gets headaches. But not everyone gets the type of frequent, severe headaches that could classify as a disability. Headache sufferers may endure recurring headaches, migraines and cluster headaches, and these can keep them from working, and functioning normally in the work world.

Many people try to control these severe headaches. They use prescription medication and make changes in their environment, diet and lifestyle. Often, they try to stay out of situations that have triggered the headaches in the first place - just to function normally.


If Your Doctor Says You Can't Work Anymore ...

If you have severe headaches and your doctor says you can't work anymore, talk to us at Binder & Binder® about how to apply for Social Security Disability benefits. We help tens of thousands of clients every year win Social Security Disability benefit claims across the United States.

Working with a highly experienced Social Security Disability team is critical to your success because these cases can be difficult to win.

Social Security Claims Attorneys for Those with Blood Disorders as a Disability

Blood Disorder Social Security Disability Claims

If you can't work because of a disability, blood disorder, or other medical cause, it is possible to get SSD or SSI benefits - depending on your circumstances. The best way to learn how to apply for Social Security Disability benefits is to talk with the attorneys at Binder & Binder®.

We represent people who cannot work because of many different blood disorder disability types, including:

  • Acute leukemia
  • Chronic anemia
  • Chronic thrombocytopenia
  • Hemophilia
  • Hematologic malignancies
  • Sickle cell anemia
  • Thrombosis or other clotting disorder

These blood disorders involve parts of the blood, including the plasma, white blood cells, red blood cells and platelets. Each of these performs a particular function in the body, including red blood cells carrying oxygen throughout your body and white blood cells fighting off infections and creating platelets that help you stop bleeding. If one fails to perform its function, a person could become seriously ill and unable to work. Medical record documentation of doctors' appointments, medications and treatment, and treating doctors' opinions are critical to proving you are eligible for blood disorder disability benefits.

At Binder & Binder®, we make sure your blood disorder disability diagnosis is clearly documented in records and statements from treating doctors that are sent to the Social Security Administration.

Diabetes Social Security Disability Claims Attorneys For Those With Diabetes

Is Your Diabetes Disability Keeping You Out Of The Workforce?

Diabetes mellitus is a condition that results from the body's inability to use blood glucose for energy – and it's a disability. Unfortunately, diabetes mellitus has recently been removed from the Social Security Disability list of impairments. This doesn't mean that people with diabetes cannot be found disabled. It just means that we have to focus more sharply on the often severe limitations imposed by this disease.

Type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes requires that you carefully monitor blood sugar levels to minimize fluctuations. Continued vigilance and strict adherence to a perpetual, multi-faceted and demanding treatment regimen are necessities when you have diabetes. Diabetes sufferers may inject insulin, follow a diabetic diet, exercise daily and test their blood sugar several times a day.

If a blood test shows a drop in glucose levels, you must stop all other activities and consume the kinds of foods that will bring your sugar levels back up to normal. Unless you act quickly, you may experience periods of dizziness, weakness, loss of ability to think or concentrate on work. It may even result in losing consciousness (or passing out). Conversely, spikes in blood glucose levels can cause equally adverse consequences.

Sometimes, this rigid schedule makes being both an insulin-dependent diabetic and a productive worker impossible. When your diabetes disability keeps you out of the workforce, you may be able to get Social Security Disability benefits.

If you are suffering from a disability or diabetes and your doctor says you can't work anymore, talk with us at Binder & Binder®. Our Social Security Disability advocates can answer your questions you might have about mental health disability benefits and Social Security Disability including what constitutes a disability, whether your impairment might be significant enough to be deemed disabling by the Social Security Administration and whether you are eligible for benefits.

Many people in the United States and around the world are blind. In the U.S. in 2012, 21 million adults had some degree of vision loss, according to the American Foundation for the Blind. Of all these people, only a small fraction received Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits in 2012. It is important for blind people to know that they may have this important resource available to them if they meet eligibility requirements.

People with blindness are often unable to work. As a result, according to some estimates, many are below or only slightly above the poverty line. The Social Security Administration (SSA) recognizes the challenges blind people face in work and daily life. To encourage them to return to work, the SSA allows recipients of disability benefits to earn more income working (Substantial Gainful Activity, or SGA) than beneficiaries with other impairments. In other words, the threshold for earning is higher for people determined to be blind by the SSA.

At Binder & Binder®, we know the challenges blind people face. We stand ready to help at any stage of a claim for SSD benefits. To learn how we can assist, please call from anywhere in the United States at 1-212-365-5018. Or contact us online for a free consultation.


Are You Eligible for SSD Benefits for Vision Loss?

Having a diagnosis of macular degeneration, cataracts or retinopathy is not enough to qualify someone for SSD benefits. Rather, the SSA measures visual acuity to determine eligibility. To be eligible for SSD benefits, a person must have vision that cannot be corrected to better than 20/200 or have a visual field of 20 degrees or less in the better eye.

Although people must meet the threshold described above to be considered blind by the SSA, they may still be able to receive disability benefits if their vision loss combined with other problems prevents them from working.

If you are suffering from a disability or blindness and your doctor says you can't work anymore, talk with us at Binder & Binder®. Our Social Security Disability advocates can answer your questions you might have about mental health disability benefits and Social Security Disability including what constitutes a disability, whether your impairment might be significant enough to be deemed disabling by the Social Security Administration and whether you are eligible for benefits.

Autoimmune Disease Social Security Disability Claims Attorneys

Social Security Disability Claims For Autoimmune Diseases Including: HIV, AIDS, Lupus, Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

An autoimmune disease is one in which the immune system mistakes its own tissues for foreign tissue and makes an inappropriate attack. When your immune system doesn't work properly, you are "immunosuppressed" and can easily become too sick to continue working. If this happens, you have options. You may be able to work with an attorney at Binder & Binder® to file a successful Social Security Disability claim for early payment of monthly Social Security Disability benefits as a result of your autoimmune disease.

At Binder & Binder®, we represent clients suffering from many different illnesses attacking their immune systems. Some of these autoimmune diseases are listed below:

  • Connective tissue disorder
  • Multiple chemical sensitivity
  • Sjogren's syndrome

Your Medical Record

If the SSA approves you for benefits, it does so by reviewing the information found in your medical record. For this reason, it is important that your records document the limiting effects of your autoimmune disease. Medical record documentation of doctors' appointments, medications and treatment, and treating doctors' opinions are critical to proving you are eligible for autoimmune disease disability benefits.

When helping you apply for Social Security Disability insurance or benefits, the Social Security Disability Attorneys at Binder & Binder® gather a full listing of your treatment sources, dates of treatment, names of doctors and the medical conditions with which you have been diagnosed.

National Social Security Disability Attorneys Representing Those with Asthma

SSD And Asthma Claims

Medical conditions that keep you from breathing correctly, such as asthma, can be some of the most frightening to deal with. Asthma is triggered by a wide range of stimuli, including physical exertion, emotional stress, chemicals, pollutants, cold or warm air, moist air, perfume, cigarette smoke, animals, and other pathogens in the environment. Asthma affects the respiratory system, and when triggered, this chronic condition constricts the airways, making it difficult to breathe.

You may want to work like you used to, but if you suffer from asthma you run the risk of triggering an asthma attack every time you go out. At Binder & Binder® we understand how challenging this can be for our clients. We help people who suffer from many different pulmonary disorders, including asthma, file their Social Security Disability application and get the benefits they are entitled to support their families and make ends meet.

There is no cure for asthma. Though it can be controlled with medications, for some people asthma can severely affect quality of life and become disabling. For that reason, asthma is listed as one of the Social Security Administration's disabling medical conditions in the respiratory system category.

If you experience severe and frequent asthma attacks that interfere with your ability to work at any job for 12 months or longer, you could be eligible for asthma disability benefits. Like any disability, asthma conditions must be proven to the Social Security Administration (SSA) with medical records and doctor's statements. At Binder & Binder®, we can evaluate your asthma disability eligibility and take care of the work of filing and proving your asthma disability benefits claim.

If you are suffering from a disability or asthma and your doctor says you can't work anymore, talk with us at Binder & Binder®.

It's time to talk with us at Binder & Binder® about your options for gastrointestinal disorder disability benefits. Our Social Security Disability attorneys are ready to help you determine your eligibility for benefits, file your application, and prove your gastrointestinal disorder disability claim.

Your gastrointestinal disorder must be shown to persist on repeated examinations despite therapy to establish that it will last for a continuous period of at least 12 months to qualify you for gastrointestinal disorder disability benefits. Medical record documentation of doctors’ appointments, medications and treatment, and treating doctors’ opinions are critical to proving you qualify for Social Security Disability benefits. With gastrointestinal disorders x-ray images, sonograms, CAT scans, and/or MRI imaging may be required as well.

SSD Hepatitis Disability Benefits Attorneys

Hepatitis Social Security Disability Claims

Hepatitis A, B, and C are viral infections that together affect an estimated 5% to 6% of Americans. Most people with hepatitis B or hepatitis C lead normal healthy lives. However, some people infected with hepatitis develop serious liver disease that severely affects their quality of life, including an inability to work.

If you are unable to work due to your hepatitis B or hepatitis C, you may be able to work with Binder & Binder® to file a successful hepatitis disability claim for early payment of monthly Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits.


Your Medical Record

If the SSA approves you for disability benefits, it does so by reviewing the information found in your medical record. For this reason, it is important that your medical records thoroughly document your condition and/or disability. Hepatitis can often present subjective symptoms, so physicians and other treating health professionals are frequently asked by the SSA to submit reports about your impairment. Medical reports for your hepatitis disability claim should include:

  • Medical history
  • Clinical findings
  • Laboratory findings
  • Diagnosis
  • Treatment prescribed with response and prognosis
  • A statement from your doctor providing an opinion about your ability to perform work-related activities, such as sitting, standing, walking, carrying, lifting, handling objects, etc.

Kidney Failure Disability

Kidney Failure And Social Security Disability Benefits

Also referred to as renal failure, kidney failure is the inability of the kidneys to properly filter chemicals and toxins from the blood, leading to increased levels of these chemicals and toxins circulating through the body. Although called kidney failure, this disease affects every system in the body. Symptoms can vary greatly from person to person, but in most cases include muscle cramping or soreness, fatigue, upset stomach, and swelling in the feet and other extremities.

Kidney failure is a life-changing diagnosis because unfortunately, treatment options for kidney failure are somewhat limited. When you have been diagnosed with kidney failure, a lot of your time and energy becomes devoted to dialysis. For most people it quickly becomes impossible to work while combating this incapacitating disability.

Liver Disease Disability

Liver Disease Social Security Disability Claims

Decreased liver function can leave you feeling weak, fatigued, and unable to work. If you suffer from chronic liver disease, including hepatitis or cirrhosis, and are no longer able to work, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits.

Generally when filing for Social Security disability due to liver disease the main issue the Social Security Administration (SSA) looks at is whether or not your disease has progressed to the point where you are unable to work. Your doctor will play a key role in obtaining disability benefits, but so will your medical record. Social Security will also attempt to determine whether or not substance abuse is a contributing factor to your liver disease. We’ve often faced these issues.

Multiple Sclerosis Disability

Multiple Sclerosis Social Security Disability Claims

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease that interferes with the communication between your brain and body, which can affect the ability to walk or talk. While there is no cure for MS, some people diagnosed with MS have mild symptoms that require little to no treatment at all. However, on the other end of the spectrum, some people with MS suffer from loss of mobility, vision loss, fatigue, and other debilitating symptoms.

If you live with the disability of multiple sclerosis and your doctor says you are no longer able to work, talk to us at Binder & Binder® about how to apply for disability benefits. The Social Security Administration (SSA) recognizes multiple sclerosis as a disability severe enough to prevent an individual from working. If you experience any of the following symptoms as a result of your MS, you may meet Social Security Disability requirements:

Renal Failure Disability

Renal Failure Social Security Disability Claims

Renal failure, also known as kidney failure, occurs when the kidneys fail to properly filter toxins from your blood. You may have heard that if you have been diagnosed by a specialist as having permanent renal failure the Social Security Administration (SSA) has a special listing that can make receiving renal failure disability benefits a relatively straightforward process. Sadly, this is a myth. Regardless of the condition you face, the information provided by your healthcare provider is what the SSA uses to approve you for Social Security Disability benefits. This information must be complete and thorough in order for you to get the benefits you are entitled to.

In order to receive Social Security Disability for renal failure, you will need a detailed history of your disorder, all doctors’ visits pertaining to your condition, information on the treatment you are receiving and how your body is responding to those treatments, and statements from your treating physicians.

Applying for renal failure disability benefits may require a lot more time and energy than you can commit to while undergoing daily treatments. At Binder & Binder®, we work with the government so that you don't have to. We understand the frustration our clients feel when filing renal failure disability insurance or benefits claims, so we go to great lengths to help them get successful results.

Seizures Disability

Seizures Social Security Disability Claims

When you suffer from seizures, you are certainly hindered from doing a lot of activities. You may be prohibited from driving a car or operating heavy machinery. You can’t be around unprotected heights. And your choice of occupations is seriously limited. However, the Social Security Administration (SSA) often denies many seizures disability claims.

The main reasons for denial of seizures disability benefits are the frequency (or infrequency) of the seizures and failure to follow prescribed treatment. When reviewing your seizures disability case, the SSA will require copies of all your medical records, including a description of the seizures and the frequency that the seizures occur, from a treating physician. The SSA also might ask for a description of your seizures from a family member or friend who has witnessed your seizures.

The SSA’s parameters for seizures that qualify for disability are extremely strict – one wrong answer or missed medical form and your claim could be denied. They have made winning seizures disability benefits difficult. Many Social Security Disability applicants become so discouraged and intimidated that they eventually give up on filing for Social Security Disability for their seizures.

You don’t have to give up on filing for seizures disability insurance or benefits with Binder & Binder® on your side. We work with the government so that you don't have to.
