Genitourinary Impairments that may Qualify for Social Security Disability
(kidney disease, dialysis)

This list of conditions which may qualify one to receive Social Security disability benefits is not intended to be authoritarian in nature and is provided only for your information. This information may not be the latest rulings provided by the SSA. Detailed information can be obtained from the Social Security Administration's website where this information was obtained.

Chronic renal diseases such as  chronic glomerulonephritis, hypertensive renal vascular disease, diabetic nephropathy, chronic obstructive uropathy and hereditary nephropathies may result in genitourinary impairments and the need for Social Security disability benefits.Kidney failure and dialysis may qualify for Social Security disability benefits

The Key!

The key to receiving disability benefits for renal disease is to prove that it is getting or has gotten worse. You will need to provide documentation providing doctor's notes and lab reports showing a progressive worsening of renal function over a period of at least three months that also interferes with your ability to work.

The Cochran Firm Disability Lawyers can provide you with a FREE disability evaluation and can also assist you in filing or appealing your disability claim. Fill out the form now.

Dialysis Treatment

In general, proof of receiving long term kidney dialysis as a verifiable result of renal failure or renal insufficiency is enough to qualify you to receive Social Security disability benefits. Of course, you will still need to go through the claims application process and provide all of the doctor's documentation providing proof of the need for dialysis. If your claim is denied you may obtain assistance from the Cochran Firm Disability Lawyers' Social Security disability attorneys for help in re-filing and appealing your disability claim.

Kidney Transplant

Although kidney transplants are increasingly more common, as with most transplants, you are probably eligible for a twelve month period of Social Security disability payments starting with the date of your transplant. After twelve months the SSA will reconsider your condition and level of function taking into consideration other physical problems you may have, reactions to medications and your ability to function then make a determination if your benefits should continue.

Summary

It is important that your genitourinary impairment be persistent, meaning it is likely to last greater than a twelve month time period. As with some other impairments, genitourinary problems can be caused by multiple conditions. Each problem by itself may not be adequate for you to obtain Social Security disability benefits, but a combination of problems may be more than enough for you to receive your disability payments.
