Bessemer Disability Attorney Listing 9.08

In many of our Social Security Blogs we have discussed various Listings found in the Code of Federal Regulations which spell out in some specifics what symptoms a person applying for disability must exhibit in order to obtain disability benefits for certain impairments. Over the next few blog entries, we thought we would list specific listings word for word for you to review. We hope this is beneficial to you.

The next impairment we will list is found in Listing 9.08; Diabetes Mellitus.

A. Neuropathy demonstrated by significant and persistent disorganization of motor function in two extremities resulting in sustained disturbance of gross and dexterous movements, or gain and stating; or

B. Acidosis occurring at least on the average of once every 2 months documented by appropriate blood chemical tests (pH or pCO2 or bicarbonate levels); or

C. Retinitis proliferans; evaluate the visual impairment under the criteria in 2.02, 2.03 or 2.04

If live in Bessemer and your claim for Social Security Disability benefits was denied; don't give up- Appeal the decision. Many people believe that their initial application was reviewed in detail and that a denial of benefits means that they are not entitled to benefits, so they forgo taking any steps to appeal the denial; this is a mistake. The majority of persons who apply for Social Security Disability benefits are denied after their initial application. Often the Social Security Administration makes their initial decision without receiving all your medical records and the Administration simply does not have the resources to contact your main treating physicians to ask the detailed questions needed concerning your condition(s). The fact is that your best chance at being awarded disability benefits is after your appeal.

If you have been denied disability related to diabetes but believe that you are entitled to benefits, don't give up; contact an experienced Alabama Social Security Disability lawyer. Contact Powell and Denny
