I Have Heard That Lupus Is Not Covered Under Social Security Claims. Is This True?
A:Lupus can be reviewed for Florida Social Security disability benefits. Systemic lupus erythematosus is included in the Social Security Administration’s listing of impairments. It is an immune disorder that attacks different parts of the body. Just like any debilitating condition, victims can apply for disability benefits; however, just because you have been diagnosed with the condition doesn’t mean that you will receive benefits.
People with lupus have been approved for Social Security disability benefits in Florida, and others have been denied. This is because lupus affects everyone differently, and not everyone is truly disabled by this condition. Additionally, some people do not fully complete their claims or do not provide supporting documentation like they should.
This is why it is important to have an experienced Broward County disability attorney help you file your disability claim for lupus so that it is done correctly.
