Genitourinary disorders are serious health conditions that affect the urinary and genital organs. Some of the most common genitourinary disorders that may affect a person’s ability to work include bladder and testicular cancer, kidney failure and nephrotic syndrome. For those with these and similar health conditions, you may be entitled to long-term disability benefits. However, you must be able to prove that your condition prevents you from maintaining full-time employment and providing for yourself.
How Do Genitourinary Conditions Impact Your Ability to Work?
While each person is different, most with genitourinary issues must deal with a wide variety of severe symptoms. Luckily, with the help of several clinical tests, it is possible to prove that your condition is serious enough to receive disability benefits from the Social Security Administration (SSA).
Some of the most common symptoms associated with genitourinary disorders include:
· Chronic fatigue
· Pain in the lower back and abdomen
· Severe nausea
· Kidney damage
· Nerve damage
· Ongoing dialysis
· Kidney transplant
· High protein levels in urine
· And more
How Can I Get Approved for Long-Term Disability Benefits?
If you want to get approved for disability payments, you must submit documents that include medical documents describing your symptoms, any lab findings regarding your condition, previous treatment programs and other supporting documentation.
The SSA may also require that you visit with their own doctors to determine your current health status. Many people find that their initial application for SSA benefits is denied for failing to meet certain criteria, so it is important to seek legal counsel to help guide you through the appeals process.
