Liver Disease Is a Qualifying Condition for Social Security

There are specific types of liver diseases the government lists as qualifying medical conditions for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. Liver disease is an umbrella term for a large number of conditions that affect the liver, including:

  • Hepatitis: Inflammation of the liver, generally caused by a virus
  • Cirrhosis: Fibrous tissue replaces dead liver cells
  • Hemochromatosis: Accumulation of iron in the liver, generally hereditary
  • Cancer: Hepatocellular and metastatic cancers from other parts of the intestinal tract
  • Budd-Chiari syndrome: The hepatic vein becoming obstructed
  • Wilson's disease: The liver fails to filter out copper

These and other types of liver diseases have a dramatic, long-term impact on the health and physical capacity of the victim.

If you are unable to earn a living because of a liver condition, you may be eligible to receive money benefits from Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income.
