If you have been diagnosed with a severe immune system disorder that has caused you to become disabled, you may qualify for Social Security disability benefits.

A New York disability lawyer can evaluate your case to determine if you qualify and can assist you with the process of filing your claim or appealing it, if you were initially denied Social Security disability benefits.

The Social Security Administration (SSA) breaks down immune system disorders into 3 main categories, including: 

  • Autoimmune disorders - these are chronic, multi-system impairments that vary from one patient to another. They are also known as collagen vascular disorders, connective tissue disorders and rheumatic diseases.
  • Immune deficiency disorders (excluding HIV infection) - patients with this type of disorder generally experience frequent, unusual infections that are difficult to treat. Patients are at risk of developing malignancies or developing an autoimmune disorder.
  • Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection - this comes with an increased risk of cancer, infection and other serious conditions.
