Home > Social Security Benefits For People Living With Hepatitis C

Living with Hepatitis C can greatly affect your health and well-being. Hepatitis C and other liver diseases is a common reason in applying for Social Security disability benefits. The Social Security disability benefits have become a safety net for most Hepatitis C patients. However, for most people suffering from this disease the requirements of the Social Security Administration can be overwhelming, confusing and slow to deal with.

Hepatitis C gradually deteriorates your ability to work. Inability to work doesn’t just happen overnight. So if you believe that you find it more and more difficult to go to work everyday, consider knowing first how Social Security processes disability claims and reviewing the medical evidence you will need to determine your disability before deciding on quitting your job. If you get approved of your application, you will be eligible for either the Social Security Disability Insurance program or the Supplemental Security Income. SSDI are paid to disabled individuals who have worked and paid into the system with the FICA taxes that are deducted from their paychecks while SSI are paid to a disabled and indigent individual that has little or no income.

The determination of your disability will depend on the medical problem and the severity of the symptoms. In most claims concerning Hepatitis C the difficulty lies in proving the severity of the symptoms. Because symptoms can substantially vary, it is important that you meet the specific medical requirement contained on the Social Security’s Listing of Impairments. If your medical condition meets the standard given, then your claim may be approved. Unfortunately, the listing does not directly deal with Hepatitis C although there is a listing for Chronic Liver disease that includes chronic active hepatitis.

Fatigue is most often the reason why the Social Security Administrative Law Judge awards benefits to Hepatitis C claimants. Social Security will review all the medical evidences and search for consistent complaints of severe fatigue. One of the common problems that claimants usually encounter is the failure to fully discuss the symptoms with the doctor creating a lack of evidence regarding severe fatigue in the doctor’s note. More medical evidence will usually be required to get your claim accepted. For that reason, it is very important to make sure that you submit all the medical evidence that you can with the application. Keep in mind that the medical standards for claiming disability benefit for Hepatitis C can be satisfied with cooperative doctors who understand the issues at hand.
