Celebrate Psoriasis Awareness Month

Published on August 21st, 2019

National awareness months are a great way to draw attention to particular topics and help spread the word. While you may not associate psoriasis with needing a Social Security attorney in Rockford, however, this autoimmune condition counts as a disability if it impacts your ability to work. Here is more information about psoriasis and tips on gathering evidence to improve your chances of gaining benefits. 

What is Psoriasis?

Let’s start with the basics: psoriasis is an autoimmune condition that causes skin cells to build up at a rapid pace. This results in patches of skin feeling itchy, bumpy and raised. In some cases, these patches may even crack and bleed. Psoriasis sufferers experience buildup on joints like knees and elbows, but these flare-ups can occur on the hands, feet, neck, scalp and face as well. 

The effects of psoriasis go deeper than surface level, as many psoriasis sufferers also experience anxiety and depression. Simple social activities may seem too tough to handle due to the embarrassment of psoriasis flare-ups. 

Disability Eligibility

Those who suffer from psoriasis and are no longer able to work should contact our social security attorney in Rockford to help obtain SSDI benefits. Our team will work with you tirelessly to prove the following:

  • The presence of extensive skin lesions that have a large impact on your ability to handle day-to-day tasks.
  • The chronic nature of your condition; you must be suffering for a minimum of three months before seeking benefits. 
  • Establishing a consistent timeframe with how long you are suffering from the effects of psoriasis. Keep in mind that the guidelines require a minimum of three months of extensive skin lesions despite the consistent use of approved medical treatment regimens.

The last thing you want to think about when suffering from psoriasis is gaining benefits. Rely on our Social Security attorney in Rockford to help gather evidence and increase your chances of disability. Contact us today to get started.
