It’s hard enough explaining what it’s like to live with lupus to friends and family. How will you get strangers at Social Security to understand that your health condition makes it impossible for you to work?
Social Security Disability benefits—including monthly checks—can make a major difference in your life when you can’t work.
And Baynetta M. Jordan, P.C., Attorney at Law, helps you gather evidence and information to explain your case of lupus to Social Security, so you can win those benefits.
You don’t need people denying that your health problems are serious. You need someone who listens and helps.

To qualify for disability benefits, you must show that you’re unable to work because of health problems, and this situation has or will last at least a year.
You can do this by showing that your symptoms of lupus are serious and seriously debilitating.
Common lupus symptoms that you might list include:
For the purpose of applying for disability benefits, you must show that at least two symptoms like these significantly limit how you function and at least two of your organs or body systems are affected.
You can also document that your symptoms have the ultimate effect of leaving you:
…unable to focus
…unable to keep up with a task
…unable to finish a task
…needing to limit your daily activity
…struggling with social situations
The Lupus Foundation of American says about 1.5 million people in the United States—a large majority of them women—have this life-disrupting disease.

To convince Social Security that your case warrants disability benefits, you need to provide evidence—evidence that your health problems are severe enough to stop you from working.
This is what that looks like:
Applying for disability benefits, or appealing a denial, takes a lot of legwork.
When you already feel drained everyday from lupus, a disability application can be hard to face.
So get some support. You don’t have to be alone in this.
