Chronic Liver Disease

Is Chronic Liver Disease a Disability?

If you are unable to work due to a disability, you may qualify for Social Security Disability benefits from the Social Security Administration (SSA). Based on your life circumstances and degree of disability, you may be eligible for either Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

A Man Suffering from Chronic Liver Disease

Getting Disability for Liver Disease

If you are living with chronic liver disease, liver failure, or cirrhosis of the liver, you may qualify for SSDI benefits and or SSI. If your liver disease has negatively affected your ability to work and earn income, you need an experienced social security disability lawyer to help you with the application process.

The first step in the application process is to prove you’re disabled under the SSA’s blue book definition of disability. In general, an individual is considered disabled if they are unable to work for 12 consecutive months or longer due to a medical condition, or if their condition is expected to be terminal.

You may be approved for benefits if you are living with chronic liver disease and have the following:

  • Excess fluid in the peritoneal cavity
  • Esophageal or gastrointestinal hemorrhage
  • Spontaneous bacterial peritonitis
  • Hepatorenal syndrome
  • Hepatopulmonary syndrome
  • End-stage liver disease with SSA CLD scores of 22 or greater

In order to obtain social security disability benefits, you will be required to provide extensive medical records that prove your condition.
