How to Apply for Disability Benefits with Nephrotic Syndrome Disorder

Nephrotic syndrome involves the development of tiny holes in one or more kidneys that permits blood proteins to leak into urine. In some cases, nephrotic syndrome is idiopathic (no known cause) or results from an underlying disorder, such as hyperlipidemia (excess lipoproteins in the bloodstream), proteinuria (high levels of proteins in urine), or systemic edema (swelling of the face, hands and feet). If nephrotic syndrome is detected in its early stages, it can usually be treated successfully. However, late-stage nephrotic syndrome can cause kidney failure and require either dialysis, kidney transplant or both.

Nephrotic Syndrome Disorder

Can Someone Get Disability Benefits for Nephrotic Syndrome?

The Social Security Administration lists nephrotic syndrome in its Blue Book manual of qualifying impairments. Before you apply for disability, you must be able to prove this disorder has affected you for three months or longer, are under a physician’s care, and have been following treatment plans. In addition, documentation showing urine has been tested two or more times within a 90-day period that shows clinical evidence of nephrotic syndrome must be submitted with your application.

People with early or middle stage nephrotic syndrome disorder may not fall within SSA parameters for disability benefits. When the SSA denies a claim for someone with nephrotic syndrome, that applicant could still receive benefits by providing medical documentation regarding compromise of their residual functional capacity (RFC). If SSA determines an applicant qualifies for RFC, they include all physical and cognitive effects caused by disabling conditions apart from nephrotic syndrome disorder.

What Is the Best Way to Apply for Disability If Someone Is Diagnosed With Nephrotic Syndrome?

Upon discovering they suffer from this type of kidney disease, applicants should discuss their case with an experienced SS disability attorney who deals with SSA denials and appeals every day. Because these lawyers specialize in filing disability claims, they know exactly what adjudicators want regarding medical documentation and proof that a disability will detrimentally affect a person’s ability to work and earn a living wage.

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."
