Lupus is a debilitating illness. I know – I have close family with lupus. I even served for a time as the Chairman of the Board for the Memphis Lupus Foundation, an affiliate of the National Lupus Foundation. I’ve seen firsthand how much this disease can change a person’s life. And when it comes to getting SSDI for lupus and other auto-immune disorders, I know how complicated and exhausting it can be.
No matter how much lupus interrupts your life, no matter how much pain you might experience, the Social Security Administration (SSA) doesn’t always take your word for it. They might deny you disability insurance even if lupus keeps you from working.
If this happens, you need to appeal within 60 days—and you need help with that appeal.
Why You Need a Lawyer for Your SSDI Lupus Appeal
A strong appeal won’t just repeat the same info as your original application. You’ll want to figure out what went wrong the first time around and fill in any holes.
For people who suffer from lupus, that might mean more details about how your life has changed, more info from your doctors, or extra medical documents you didn’t include the first time around.
The problem is, it’s not always clear what your original application lacked. You may have applied to the best of your ability—so how can you possibly improve it?
A great lawyer figures out what’s missing and then helps you put together a stronger application so your appeal is successful.
