Social Security in Missouri - A Diabetes Disability Lawyer


Social Security in Missouri - A Diabetes Disability Lawyer

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is a federal program that offers financial assistance to individuals who are unable to work due to a disability. In order to qualify for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, a claimant must be unable to earn a living wage and take part in Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA) due to their disability.

Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is included in section 9.00 of the Blue Book as a qualifying condition. Although symptoms of the condition are more readily detectable and well managed than they have previously been in the past, those suffering from Diabetes can be diligent about managing their health and still have debilitating symptoms which prevent them from working and earning a living wage.

Diabetes often comes with a number of life altering and possibly life threatening complications. They can affect the cardiovascular and urinary systems, lead to neuropathy, limb amputation, and more. Even when diabetes is managed with proven medical techniques and medication, it can still get out of hand and easily control a person’s life.

When someone’s functional capacities are affected by their disease, they can make a viable claim for disability benefits. With DM, this may include a limited ability to see or walk normally, or severe neuropathy in the hands or feet.

A claimant’s mental health may also be impacted by this disabling condition, resulting in depression and/or anxiety which can lead to a limited ability to work, comply with medical treatments and advice, and other health problems.

It can be a challenge to obtain disability insurance for diabetics who need it, even when their symptoms are clear and debilitating.

What Clients are Saying

Find out how the clients who trusted us feel about our firm.

I cannot say enough
good about Matthew Grundy and
ALL of his staff.

I contacted his office October 2020, because I had and still am, fighting breast cancer. I had numerous surgeries, still doing chemo, finished radiation and still fighting the fight. They took care of everything and that was such a blessing because I was too sick and weak to do it myself. I would absolutely recommend them and I am so grateful that a friend referred them to me. They were always polite and punctual returning my calls and emails. Don’t go it alone, let them take care of it, reserve your strength to fight for your health.”

Dear Matt

I want to take a moment to say I appreciate all you do for clients (me) throughout the SSD process. You provided me top-shelf representation, case knowledge and follow up. Thank you!”

— A.S. Leawood, KS

A friend referred
me to Matt Grundy.
He was amazing!

I felt the weight lift off my shoulders. He was caring and efficient and took over the whole process. He handled all correspondence and was my voice in my hearing. I was ecstatic when Matt got my disability approved. I wish I had started with Matt before I ever filed.”

— W.T. Kansas City

After being denied trying to file on my own
I was fortunate to have Grundy Disability Group
recommended to me.

A short survey and a visit then they took control of my case. This was the best decision I’ve ever made. Matt answered all my questions without hesitation and gave me confidence about my case. I’ve already recommended them to others and will do so gladly. Thank you Matt and his team!”

— W.S. Kansas City

I had a great experience
working with this office.

They are thorough, and get the job done with the least amount of stress on the client as possible. I would recommend them to anyone I know who needs help navigating their SSDI claim. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.”

— W.W. Kansas City

Now I can pay my bills again and get caught up again that is a relief. thank you guys again so much god bless you and all your families.”

— A.D. Kansas City

Thanks again for
your help on all this.

From the first conversation I had with Susan Frank, whose advice set me on a course to lay the groundwork of a successful claim – months before I hired you. I spoke to a couple of other places before I spoke to her and there was no comparison. The difference between my initial contact with Susan VS the others was a personal connection and actual value in the phone call. It was informative, connected and extremely helpful. This built trust and made my decision to choose your organization easy. My ongoing dealings with you only confirmed my choice. Matt is extremely connected with his clients and communicates promptly and thoughtfully.”
