Is Your Sarcoidosis Preventing You From Working?

Sarcoidosis is a disease that leads to inflammation in different organs in the body. Sarcoidosis may cause a variety of symptoms depending on which part of the body is affected.

Social Security looks at how sarcoidosis affects your maximum ability to perform work-related activities on a continuing basis. Social Security is required to consider the nature and extent of your sarcoidosis, and how this condition restricts your ability to sit, stand, walk, lift, carry, push, and pull, as well as your ability to perform postural or manipulative activities (i.e. bending, twisting, stooping, reaching, fingering, or feeling). Social Security will assess any further limitations that your sarcoidosis might cause, such as a need for environmental restrictions, unscheduled breaks, or excessive absences due to symptoms or treatments.

If sarcoidosis interferes with your ability to manage daily activities or maintain employment, Zerbe Garner Blondell & Weldon LLP can help. Our attorneys help individuals suffering from sarcoidosis fight for disability benefits. If you are disabled because of your sarcoidosis, or if you need help determining if you are eligible to receive Social Security benefits because of sarcoidosis, contact Zerbe Garner Blondell & Weldon LLP.
