Can I Qualify for Disability Benefits With a Genitourinary Disorder?

For those who are experiencing health complications as the result of a serious disease, ailment or disorder and are unable to maintain steady employment, you may qualify for Social Security disability benefits. If you are interested in applying for SSD benefits, the Social Security Administration (SSA) requires that you prove:

Genitourinary Disorder

· Your condition keeps you from doing the type of work you did previously

· Your condition prevents you from taking on a new type of work

· And your condition has lasted/will last for at least one year, or it will eventually result in death

If you have been diagnosed with a genitourinary disorder, you may be eligible to receive monthly SSDI benefits from the Social Security Administration. However, it is important to understand how the SSA evaluates urogenital conditions before you apply.

Do I Qualify for Genitourinary Disorder Disability Benefits?

To better help applicants and physicians determine which disabling conditions may qualify for disability benefits, the SSA has developed a Blue Book guide that lists common medical and health conditions in 14 different categories, while listing the specifications of certain impairments within these categories. Impairments of the genitourinary system are listed in the sixth category.

The genitourinary system is made up of an individual’s reproductive organs and urinary system. In the Blue Book, the SSA has broken down category 6 into five subsections, with each of these subsections limited to one or more peculiar conditions. The five subsections include:

· Diabetic Nephropathy

· Hypertensive Renal Vascular Disease

· Chronic Glomerulonephritis

· Chronic Obstructive Uropathy

· Hereditary Nephropathies (such as Alport Syndrome)

Some of the other common conditions that may be evaluated under genitourinary impairments include:

· Kidney Disease

· Kidney Dialysis

· Interstitial Cystitis

· Nephrotic Disorders

· End-Stage Renal Disease

How Does the SSA Evaluate Genitourinary Conditions?

Genitourinary conditions can affect people regardless of their age or gender and often result in medical complications that interfere with regular employment. In many cases, the SSA will require that applicants prove their condition has lasted or will last for at least a 12 month period. While evaluating common genitourinary conditions, the SSA will look closely at different types of medical evidence, including:

· Hospitalization Records

· Lab Tests and Clinical Results

· Treatment Records

· Biopsy Tests

· And More

If you have a genitourinary issue, you may be a good candidate for SSI or SSDI benefits. Interested applicants should keep in mind that the more detailed and comprehensive your medical evidence is, the better chance you will have at receiving monthly genitourinary disorder disability benefits.

Testimonial by Lilliam Rivera-Reyes

"I had a very challenging case; another attorney took my case and to my surprise sent me a letter dropping my case. I was very down and did not think I had a chance, until I met Mr. Berger and his staff.

Their professionalism and hospitality was very warm and inviting. They took my case on as a challenge and gave me a hope. I am very thankful for his professionalism and for winning my case. I will never forget him and will recommend him to my friends and family."
