Even with the advancements in treatment that have been made in the decades since AIDS/HIV was identified, this disease poses incredible risks. There is still no cure for HIV. While many respond very well to treatment and are able to live incredibly full lives, AIDS/HIV can still have a disabling impact on the life of someone living with that infection.

What Information Will I Need To Secure Benefits?

Disability benefits from the Social Security Administration (SSA) through either the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) can offer additional financial stability to those living with AIDS or HIV. Securing those benefits requires specific information to be presented to the SSA, including:

  • Definitive documentation of infection via an accepted means such as a positive test result for HIV antibodies and the impact of the symptoms on your daily life and ability to function in a work setting.

According to SSA regulations, evidence of the impact of treatment can also act as support for a claim of disability, such as:

  • Intrusiveness and complexity of treatment
  • Effect of treatment on mental functioning
  • Variability of your response to treatment
  • Interactive and cumulative effects of treatment
  • Duration of treatment
  • Any other aspects of treatment that interfere with ability to function
