Can You Receive Disability If Diagnosed With Lupus? What Are The Requirements/restrictions?

I'm retired but if I was unable to I would have applied for disability. I know lupies filing for disability is a pain in the neck. I work in medical facilities hosps clinics etc I filed ins for people to help them receive pmts. Getting disability is not easy. Sometimes it takes twice to apply. Iv had to help getting info again to apply the second time. So advice try and try and try again. Its hard to do that especially if you need benefits now. I will tell u that there r ways to help you with your needs. Check with your drs, medicaid office and tt a hospital representative whose job is helping others. I know they take into consideration your income employeement situation. If hurt on the job they expect, that is disability, that that employment ins would be responsible. There is more info I could tell you but I'd be writing a book. Lol PS: if right now you do have coverage that coverage might end so I recommend you get all the information you can now that disability will be asking for. You have to have your dr confirm your disability. I'm not on disable but still could get a disability parking sticker as dr wrote letter for me. Then you will be ahead, hey you may not need it if you can go on Medicare instead. But good luck. Have lots of patience it will be worth it.
