Crohn’s disease is one of the conditions that is known as Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (“IBD”) . Social Security Disability (“SSD”) claimants with Crohn’s and other types of IBD are usually denied initially, and then forced to go to a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge as the next step of the approval process. Unfortunately, the wait for a hearing these days is very long .
I represent a 35 year old former special ed teacher with Crohn’s who was just approved without the need for a hearing. While no express reason was provided for the approval, the relatively rapid approval was apparently because the Crohn’s disease met the listing for IBD.
Medical information supporting the listing elements was submitted, along with a medical report detailing how the Crohn’s reduced the claimant’s ability to function. Recognizing what information needs to be submitted in light of the particular medical condition is essential to securing SSD benefits, especially without having to wait for a hearing.Previous Next
