Disability for Immune System Disorders

The immune system is your body’s defense mechanism against infections. Without it, or with a weakened system, you would get sick often from harmful bacteria and viruses inside your body.

If you or a loved one are diagnosed with a disorder of the immune system and are looking for a social security disability lawyer in Kingsport or the surrounding areas, contact Drozdowski & Rabin today. We are professional disability lawyers in Knoxville, TN, with years of experience helping clients get approved for disability benefits.

What Immune System Disorders Are Evaluated by the SSA?

The Social Security Administration (SSA) will evaluate immune system disorders that cause dysfunction in one or more components of your immune system.

Whether the disorder is caused by antibody production, impaired cell-mediated immunity, or phagocytosis, a combined type of antibody/cellular deficiency, or a complement deficiency, the SSA will evaluate your claim.

If you are living with an immune system disorder and want to apply for social security disability benefits in Morristown or a neighboring area, contact our law firm to schedule an appointment for your free case evaluation.

The type of immune system disorders typically covered under SSI benefits is those that result in recurrent or unusual infections or inflammation and dysfunction within your body’s tissues, an extreme loss of function in a single body organ or system, or when associated with severe fatigue, diffuse musculoskeletal pain, and involuntary weight loss.

Categories of Immune System Disorders

The Social Security Administration organizes its evaluations into three categories:

  • Autoimmune Disorders. These are classified as disorders caused by the dysfunction of your immune system’s response directed against the body’s own tissues. This dysfunction will result in severe chronic, multisystem impairments.
  • Immune Deficiency Disorders (excluding HIV). These disorders are characterized by recurrent or unusual infections that typically do not respond well to treatment. They are classified as congenital disorders or acquired, and are often associated with difficulties that affect other areas of your body.
  • Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) Infection.

We understand the qualifications for disability benefits can be confusing, which is why we suggest contacting the law office of Drozdowski & Rabin to get the help you need to achieve the results you deserve.

Evidence You Need to Provide

When you are applying for social security benefits, you will need to provide a detailed medical history, any reports from physical examinations performed by medical professionals, laboratory findings, and in some rare cases, tissue biopsy and/or imagine results.

Once you become our client, we will take over the efforts in obtaining all of these reports, including medical history, findings, and lab test results. It is important to obtain as much information as possible in order to build your case and get it approved by the SSA.
