Autoimmune Diseases


Many autoimmune disease and disorders such as Crohn’s disease, lupus (systemic lupus erythematosus),multiple sclerosis, and rheumatoid arthritis (RH) are recognized by the Social Security Administration (SSA) as qualifying conditions for receiving Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits.

The Social Security Administration evaluates each case individually to determine whether or not the effects of the autoimmune disease or the treatment would preclude you from doing any kind of work for a period of at least twelve months. We’ve listed a few of the qualifying conditions on our website, but the circumstances of each case are unique.

At the Law Offices of Harold W. Conick & Associates Ltd., we are experienced in handling social security disability claims related to autoimmune disease and disorders including but not limited to lupus, Crohn’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and rheumatoid arthritis (RH). We understand what the SSA is looking for when evaluating claims, and are here to be your tough advocates regardless of the level of your appeal.

We also realize that this is a difficult time, and are here to answer your questions. For more information or to schedule a free consultation, contact us today.
