I have recently taken on several disability clients afflicted with Antiphospholipid Syndrome. According to the Mayo Clinic, Antiphospholipid Syndrome is an incurable condition that occurs when your immune system mistakenly attacks some of the normal proteins in your blood, which can cause blood clots, stroke, headaches, rashes, cardiovascular disease, and memory loss.
I represent a 62 year old bookkeeper with Antiphospholipid Syndrome, whose Social Security Disability (“SSD”) application was approved today after just three months. Having obtained the documentation establishing the diagnosis of Antiphospholipid Syndrome, it was not difficult showing the claimant’s entitlement to SSD benefits, even though her past work sedentary.
In order to reduce the claimant’s risk of a clot in her legs, her doctor advised her to elevate them frequently above the height of her heart. As sedentary work cannot be performed properly with elevated legs, whether lying down or reclining in a chair, the claimant had to be found disabled.Previous Next
