Other Diseases


Many diseases such as chronic liver disease, sickle cell disease (also known as sickle cell anemia), and Hepatitis C 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 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 physical injuries and disabilities including but not limited to chronic headaches, amputations, cerebral palsy, eye sight problems, nerve disorders and spinal injuries. 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.
