Disability Benefits for Arthritis
Social Security Disability Lawyers
Do you suffer from arthritis?
Arthritis is the inflammation of one or more joints, resulting in pain, swelling, stiffness, redness in the joints, and limited movement. Arthritis affects weight-bearing joints, ultimately leading to joint weakness in interfering with the ability to effectively ambulate or perform gross movement activities. In some instances, arthritis can affect other organs of the body, which can be accompanied by severe fatigue, fevers, malaise, and weight loss.
Social Security looks at how arthritis 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 arthritis, 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 arthritis might cause, such as a need for environmental restrictions, unscheduled breaks, or excessive absences due to symptoms or treatments.
