Obtaining SSD Benefits For Serious Illnesses

Beyond physical injuries and mental health, serious illness or health problems can greatly impact your ability to work or prevent you from seeking employment. At Harlan Still & Koch in Columbia, Missouri, our lawyers can help you or a family member who may be ill in seeking Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) so you can maintain financial stability.

What If I Can’t Work Due To Serious Illness?

Some illnesses are caused by certain environmental factors based on the type of work you do. Others are simply the product of age, genetics or a host of other factors. Thankfully, your right to file for SSD or SSI benefits does not depend on what caused your illness or a loved one’s condition. Our lawyers help those with illnesses such as:

  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Heart disease
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Asthma
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Learning disabilities and other mental disability conditions

Many of these conditions can be the products of other health conditions you have or have suffered in the past. We provide comprehensive representation and will help you gather the appropriate medical evidence needed to seek illness benefits. Our Columbia attorneys will guide you through the entire five-step process, providing dedicated advocacy and personal attention at each step.
