Can You Qualify for Social Security Disability with a Endocrine Disorder

By Michelle Shvarts
Principal Attorney

An endocrine disorder can make working impossible, leaving you worried about how to support your family. The good news is, there are many endocrine disorders that can qualify you for Social Security Disability benefits.

Social Security Disability can give you the peace of mind of knowing you have monthly income coming in. However, qualifying for benefits is difficult even when you have a covered disorder because the Social Security Administration is strict in which applications it approves and more than half of all claims for benefits are denied.

A Los Angeles disability benefits lawyer can provide you with help proving your endocrine disorder should make you eligible for disability income. Contact an attorney today to get the assistance you need to maximize your chances of a successful benefits application. 

Qualifying for Social Security Disability Benefits With an Endocrine Disorder

To determine if you can qualify for Social Security Disability income on the basis of your endocrine disorder, you will first need to determine whether your condition is listed in the blue book, which is the informal name of a listing of impairments used by Social Security when determining benefits eligibility.

Endocrine disorders for adults are covered in Section 9.00 of Part A of the blue book. The Social Security Administration explains within the blue book the specific endocrine disorders which can potentially allow you to obtain benefits. This includes pituitary gland disorders, thyroid disorders, and adrenal gland disorders, among others. For each particular condition, the Social Security Administration also specifies the specific symptoms you must have for that particular disorder in order to make you eligible for coverage. 

Even when your condition should be covered, you can face challenges in getting your application approved because of the high denial rate in applying for benefits. A Los Angeles disability benefits attorney can help, so give us a call today.
