Diabetes and SSD Benefits

Man with amputated leg

Have you been diagnosed with diabetes? Do you have to take shots of insulin and cannot work because of severe health problems related to your diabetes?

Diabetes is a very serious disease that can result in other conditions including:

  • Eye problems and blindness
  • Sores on your feet and skin – sometimes requiring amputation
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Nerve damage
  • Kidney failure

Many of these problems can be fatal. Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the U.S.

If you suffer from diabetes severe enough that you cannot work full-time, you may qualify for Social Security disability benefits.

However, the Social Security Administration denies over three-fourths of initial applications.

Application Denied? You Must Act Now

If your SSD claim was denied, contact our law firm immediately. You only have 60 days to file an appeal.

We win the majority of claims we appeal for our clients. We can help you get the money you need and give you peace of mind.

Eligibility for SSD and SSI Benefits

You may be eligible for SSD or SSI benefits, but the Social Security Administration's evaluation process is very tough.

While diabetes is a serious illness, having it doesn't automatically mean you'll be approved for SSD benefits. You must have severe diabetes and be experiencing complications related to your diabetes.

If your application has been denied, you need the help of experts who know the system. You need money to pay your bills, because you can't work. You need Edgar Snyder & Associates on your side.

How Edgar Snyder & Associates Can Help

Our attorneys and legal staff help you with your appeal by:

  • Gathering medical records and reports
  • Gathering evidence for your claim
  • Gathering documents from your Social Security file
  • Talking with your doctor about your condition and how it makes you unable to work
  • Providing advice to you to help you prepare for your Social Security hearing
  • And more

Best of all, there's never a fee unless we get money for you. If we don't win your appeal, you won't owe us anything.
