Disability Benefits for HIV and AIDS
Social Security Disability Lawyers
Do you suffer from AIDS?
Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), is the advanced stages of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). HIV virus kills cells of the body’s immune system, and is upgraded to AIDS when an infected person has a dangerously low number of CD4+T cells and develops one or more opportunistic infections, such as malignancies or bacterial, fungal, or viral infections.
Social Security looks at how AIDS affects your maximum physical ability to perform work-related activities on a continuing basis. Social Security is required to consider the nature and extent of your AIDS, and how this condition restricts your ability to sit, stand, walk, lift, carry, push, and pull, as well as your ability to perform postural or manipulative activities (i.e. bending, twisting, stooping, reaching, fingering, or feeling). Social Security will also assess any further limitations that your AIDS might cause, such as a need for environmental restrictions, unscheduled breaks, or excessive absences due to symptoms or treatments.
