Disability Benefits for Crohn's Disease
If you are an individual suffering from Crohn’s disease and you find that it is impairing your ability to work, you could possibly quality for disability benefits.
Social Security does consider Crohn's disease to be a significant impairment that may prevent an individual from performing substantial work; therefore, it is possible for an individual to be approved for disability benefits on the basis of Crohn's disease.
Crohn's disease is evaluated under inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in the listing of impairments published by the Social Security Administration (SSA).
To qualify under the IBD listing, you need to have been diagnosed with Crohn’s disease by a doctor, plus have a listed complication. If you don’t meet the list of complications, you can also qualify for SSDI if you can show that your symptoms make it impossible to work your prior job, and that with your job skills and education, there are no other types of jobs you could learn to do that you would be capable of doing.
