Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease that can lead to significant tissue damage, organ failure, disability and death, according to the Lupus Foundation of America (LFA). Many individuals with lupus are unable to continue working just a few years after diagnosis. If they are unable to work for 12 months or more, they may be eligible for the SSDI benefits they paid for during their working years. These benefits are often a lifeline for former workers, providing a monthly income and access to Medicare.
However, most people who apply for SSDI benefits are denied and appeals can take several months or years. Nationally, nearly 1 million people with severe disabilities are waiting an average 600 days for a disability hearing. In Missouri, 30,075 people are waiting an average 614 days.
