Diabetes Mellitus

Diabetes mellitus is an endocrine gland disorder affecting the production of insulin. It can be a debilitating and devastating impairment, as the overall risk of dying among people with diabetes is at least double the risk of their peers without diabetes worldwide.[1] Yet a mere diagnosis of diabetes does not necessarily equate with a finding of disability under the Social Security Act, and every day thousands of workers engage in substantial gainful activity despite a diagnosis of diabetes mellitus.

Function Report

After you file your Social Security Disability claim, you may be asked to fill out an adult function report (Form SSA-3373), to aid a decision-maker in determining whether you are completely disabled. The function report should outline how your impairments interfere with activities of daily living (ADLs) according to your own words. Activities of daily living may include the ability to get dressed, groom yourself, prepare meals, clean your home, obtain groceries, and care for children or pets.

Brain injuries and lost wages

Not only can traumatic brain injuries lead to high medical bills and a long road to recovery, but they can also cause you to lose wages when you can't work. This is true both for those who are employed for a salary or hourly wages and those who own and run their own businesses.

Helping disabled Minnesota residents get the benefits they need

Disabled American citizens can pursue government benefits to help them meet their daily living expenses, but the process of successfully qualifying for those benefits can be daunting. Indeed, a disabled individual might have a disability that makes it difficult or impossible to fill out the appropriate forms for an SSI benefits application. Alternatively, an individual might file for benefits and be denied.
