The link between illness and social security in Minnesota

Many people in Minnesota know that they may be able to collect social security due to disabilities or due to their age, but it is important to understand that it can also be collected, in some cases, because of illness. These illnesses may be viewed in a similar light to disabilities, due to the fact that they are severe and can change what a person is able to do.

For instance, some of the illnesses on the list include the following:

- HIV- Arthritis- Cancer- Crohn's disease- Parkinson's disease- And many more!

As can be seen, these are serious disorders that can have a significant impact on someone's life, both in terms of their physical well-being and in terms of their earning potential. Furthermore, some of them require treatments that can also be very disabling. For instance, some cancer treatments, while beneficial, can cause people to feel so sick while they are being treated, so they simply cannot work.

When looking into social security benefits, it is also important to remember that multiple ailments could be present at once. Individuals who develop cancer as they grow older could already have been struggling with arthritis or Crohn's disease for years, or they could have had HIV for their entire life. These things can be considered together when determining what needs to be done.

Do you want to find out more about your rights or are you unsure what to do to get the benefits that you both need and deserve? If so, please check out our page on Social Security disability benefits for illness for more information.
