You may be able to secure disability benefits for arthritis

When a medical condition keeps you from working and effectively providing for your family, it can cause you to feel both helpless and hopeless. You may find yourself in this situation if you have a serious case of arthritis, yet you may be able to secure disability benefits.

Arthritis is a relatively common medical condition, yet people often dismiss its potential to cause severe limitations and chronic pain. Every Indiana patient with this condition is different and unique, but it is possible that your case is serious enough to impact your ability to hold gainful employment and do everyday tasks.

Arthritis: more prevalent and more serious than you think

Arthritis is one of the most common medical conditions. Despite its prevalence, many people do not understand how difficult it can be to live and work with this condition. The following are a few things that most do not know about this specific type of condition:

  • Arthritis is the leading cause of disability in the nation.
  • Estimates suggest that more than 50 million people have a doctor-diagnosed case of arthritis.
  • Two-thirds of the adults with arthritis are working age.
  • Working adults with arthritis miss more days from work than individuals with other types of medical conditions.
  • Arthritis is one of the most expensive medical conditions to have.
  • This medical condition often causes its victims to lose money because of treatment costs and time missed from work.
  • Arthritis is more common in people who already have other types of medical conditions.

If you are struggling to live and work while dealing with this type serious, debilitating and painful diagnosis, you are not alone. When any type of medical condition keeps you from working, even if it is not visible, you may have a rightful claim to Social Security disability benefits.

Fighting for the benefits you deserve

The process for obtaining Social Security Disability benefits is complex. Many initial claims come back denied, and it is possible that you may need to appeal to actually secure the financial support to which you have a rightful claim. Many people find it useful to secure help in order to more effectively navigate this complicated and often frustrating process.

You may be genuinely disabled because of arthritis, but you still have certain rights and the option to seek benefits. You may be unable to work and support yourself and your family, but there are specific steps you can take to address the financial needs of your family.
