Does anyone know if social security disability excepts degenerate disc disease and spondylitis , diverticulosis as a illness for qualifications to get disability social security? I have been turned down and don't know what to do. I'm afraid to get a job for fear I won't be able to do the job due to illness's . Help !
A lot is based on what your doctors say when they fill out their report for your medical condition. Talk to your doctor and let them know you want to apply, make sure they are on your side. If you have just one doctor, see some specialists. Fear is mental health, see one , get a team that will back you. SS has many doctors to avauate you but their job is to turn your doctors recommendations around. This is sort of like reviewing a football play , unless there is clear evidence that your doctors call is wrong the call stands. If you have multiple doctors saying basically the same thing then the claim will stand. Also having multiple issues helps . Your back is one, fear is depression that's two, if you can't sleep that's insomnia, that's 3 ......make sure everything is listed
Get a lawyer
They won't charge you unless they win
Everyone gets turned down the first time
Sweetie. I don't know why disability does the way they do. I got MINE right out of THE gate I sign up and a month to the date. I got MY approval. But I had a wonderful4 doctor. She called them every day. Faxed everything to them she would not let up on them. Thats what you need. But the o only thing I had been sick a year but I didn't qualify for 1 year of back pay. But you miss something you never had in the first place.💗🙏💗
PLEASE keep fighting. Get a good doctor. Keep every note every hospital stay everything to do with YOUR illness.GOD BLESS you.
They are all reasons for getting disability. But they will fight you all the way.Make sure you get all medical records and notes.They normally denie it first go around.Especially if your under age 55.I ebded up getting a lawyer,got to court one month from 3 yrs.Found out from judge i was approved in my first year,but my state blocked it.Judge admitted it was wrong.I would highly suggest getting a lawyer.It takes a lot of stress off the process. Yes they get 20% of your back pay from day you filed and get approved. But worth it in my opinion.Good luck,be patient,it rarely happens fast
