Organ Transplants and Social Security Disability

by | Oct 6, 2014 | Social Security Disability |

The Social Security disability program is almost never black and white. There are very few disease that will automatically qualify you to receive benefits. A common question I am asked is, “Does have [fill in the blank disease] make me disabled?” The answer is almost always, “It depends.”

However, one fast rule of Social Security benefits is that if you received an organ transplant, Social Security will assume that you are disabled for at least 12-months after your transplant. If you or your loved one has received an organ transplant and isn’t receiving Social Security disability benefits already, contact SSA as soon as possible to get an application started.

Additional information regarding organ transplant cases can be found on the Social Security website located here. If you are unsure of the current status of your claim or, have any questions regarding a potential disability claim, please call our Mobile, Alabama law office to speak with our staff.
