Development Disabilities

Until recent years, the implications of disability for human rights went largely unaddressed. Too often when a person is not awarded Social Security Disability benefits it is not because the person is not disabled. Other researchers are keen to emphaise that there is social oppression at play in the field of disability. If you are covered for disability insurance benefits (SSDI)(see the frequently asked questions page for information), federal law allows you to reopen the prior claim within one year of the date of the initial denial for any reason.

It can be done in person at the Social Security Administration, or you can begin the application process on Social Security’s toll free number, 1(800)772-1213, or on the website. As a general rule, you probably have enough work credits to qualify, if you worked for 5 out of the last 10 years.

When might it be necessary to file new claim? Claimants applying for Social Security disability benefits with hypogammaglobulinemia often suffer for example from bronchitis or asthma. My suggestion is that if possible you avoid seeing any employee at a SSA local office!

Being affiliated with a specific religion can sometimes help those of us with disabilities find comfort in times of isolation and despair. Keep in mind that, due to current backlogs in the system, it can take up to two years to have your case heard before an administrative judge!

The second common protection against this type of risk is social security and disability benefits. Supplemental Security Income is a disability program for individuals that meet certain income requirements in addition to the disability requirements.
