About 1.5 million Americans have Lupus according to the Lupus Foundation of America. Because the Social Security Administration (“SSA”) recognizes that Lupus frequently can prevent a person from being able to work, it created a listing for it. Claimants with Lupus can receive Social Security Disability (“SSD”) benefits even if they do not meet the criteria for the listing.
I represent a 59 year old former administrative clerk with Lupus whose SSD claim was approved today, without the need for a hearing. We submitted a report from the treating rheumatologist that cited RNP and ANA antibodies as the laboratory test data that supported his opinions. A staff attorney from the hearing office then asked us for that objective medical evidence, we provided copies of the test results. Thereafter, the staff attorney advised us that she would recommend having SSD benefits approved.Previous Next
