Social Security Benefits For Allergic And Hypersensitivity Disorders
An allergic reaction occurs when the body attempts to fight off a naturally occurring environmental substance. Most people have no reaction to these substances but, for some, their presence wreaks havoc in the body. Allergies can range from mildly annoying seasonal allergies to deathly allergic reactions (anaphylaxis). Some common allergens include: pet dander, pollen, dust, types of foods, insect bites, mold spores and certain types of medicines. Once allergies are identified they can usually be treated with medications to alleviate the symptoms of milder allergies to life-saving injections including epinephrine for anaphylaxis.
Allergies may cause debilitating skin conditions, such as contact dermatitis, which could interfere with the ability to work. An individual may also become allergic or hypersensitive to elements in the work environment which could make it physically impossible for them to return to their place of employment. The fear of anaphylaxis may cause anxiety and may interfere with the attention or concentration required for work.
In order to prove your disability to Social Security, you need to either document that your condition or conditions meet or equal in severity the criteria found in the Social Security Commissioner’s regulations or, if you are an adult, that your condition and symptoms are so severe that you are unable to work. If you are a child under 18, you must similarly show that your condition or conditions meet or equal in severity the criteria in the Social Security Commissioner’s regulations or that your condition or conditions functionally equals the Commissioner’s regulations.
