Workers diagnosed with diabetes may be entitled to Social Security benefits

Workers who have been diagnosed with diabetes may possibly qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) if they suffer from any of the debilitating complications that many individuals with diabetes experience.

If complications from diabetes have affected your ability to work and make a living, you could possibly qualify for Social Security disability benefits, especially if those complications involve:

  • Deteriorating or total loss of eyesight
  • Serious diseases that affects the kidneys or the heart
  • Amputation of limb due to unnoticed wound that got infected
  • Nerve damages
  • Serious skin problems

Unfortunately, these complications and the treatments required for them could leave an individual unable to continue working in any meaningful capacity. In situations such as this, pursuing benefits from the Social Security Administration could be the only option a person has for making ends meet.
