Individuals with Blood Diseases May Qualify for Social Security Disability Benefits


According to a wide range of sources, people who suffer from blood diseases, commonly referred to as hematological disorders, may be eligible to qualify for Social Security disability benefits for illness due to their health conditions.

The Social Security Administration evaluates two types of blood diseases, basing their analyses on whether or not the individual’s disorder is cancerous or non-cancerous. Examples of cancerous disorders include:

  • Leukemia
  • Lymphoma
  • Multiple myeloma

Examples of non-cancerous disorders that may also qualify an individual for receipt of Social Security disability benefits include:

  • Thrombosis
  • Hemostasis
  • Hemolytic anemias
  • Bone marrow failure disorders

How Does the SSD Determine Who Qualifies for SSD Benefits?

To determine whether a person who suffers from a blood disease qualifies for benefits, the SSA will require the person to obtain extensive documentation from medical experts, including a laboratory or physician’s report that records the individual’s condition. Additionally, the SSA may want to conduct several other analyses depending on the individual’s specific illness, since each blood disease attacks the body in different ways.
