Secure Your Benefits and Your Sense of Security
Diabetes can affect every aspect of your life. You might have trouble with essential functions like cooking or running errands, or more taxing activities like spending time with family and going to work.
When you’re unable to make a living because of your health, life gets harsh. You worry about how you’re going to afford housing, utility bills and food. The stress makes it harder to manage your health.
With Social Security Disability benefits, you could gain financial stability and be able to exhale.
Benefits provide checks every month. The process of getting benefits is just so hard. Most people get denied.
Diabetes presents particular challenges because everybody’s case is different and many people can still work while they have this condition. If you can work, you can’t get disability benefits.
At Angelina Valle & Associates, we know how to show Social Security why you need benefits. Social Security Disability is all we do.
Angelina Valle is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Social Security Disability lawyer helping people in San Jose, Salinas and all over the Bay Area win benefits and restore stability to their lives.
How to Qualify for Social Security Disability for Diabetes
In order to qualify for disability for diabetes in San Jose, CA, you need to provide proof of diabetes symptoms that have prevented—or will prevent—you from working for at least a year.
Keep in mind that if your symptoms are not severe and you could modify your job and still work a substantial amount, then you will not be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits.
The serious symptoms that may prevent you from working include:
- Cardiovascular disease
- Kidney and nerve damage
- Vision loss
- Damage to various body systems such as your urinary tract, digestive system, and autonomic neuropathy in your heart and blood vessels
And the proof of your symptoms could include the following:
- Documentation of the prescription medicine you take
- Results from medical tests
- Doctors’ reports
- Information about your exercise regimen and diet
- Testimonials from those who are familiar with your condition, such as family, friends and former co-workers
Angelina Valle & Associates can take a look at your situation let you know it you have a good chance of qualifying for benefits.
