Meniere’s disease is an ear disorder that may result in your inability to hold down a job and have a huge impact on your activities of daily living. Indiana disability lawyer Scott Lewis has represented Indiana disability claimants with Meniere’s and understands how difficult this disease can make everyday life. If you suffer from Meniere’s disease and you are unable to work because of symptoms that affect you in a severe manner, it may be time to file for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits.
While the symptoms of Meniere’s disease may vary, they may include:
One can only imagine with the above symptoms how difficult it can be to function in a work like activity or simply to carry out daily activities. The Social Security Administration (SSA) does recognize Meniere’s disease in its “Listing of Impairments” under Listing 2.07 Disturbance of Labyrinthine-vestibular Function. It is important for Indiana residents suffering from Meniere’s disease to examine this listing to determine if they meet or equal the criteria needed for disability. Indianapolis disability attorney Scott Lewis often crafts questionnaires and submits them to physicians with the hope that they will complete them to help support a claim of disability for Meniere’s disease.
If you do not meet the listing for Meniere’s disease, what should you do? If you are unable to work because of this condition, it is important not to give up. In Indiana Social Security attorney Scott Lewis‘ experience you may be found disabled by an Indiana Social Security disability appeals hearing office because your disability simply prevents you from performing substantial gainful activity (SGA). In other words, with the problems Meniere’s disease presents, you cannot perform work at a certain level.
