Facing physical and financial crisis?
Collect Disability for Cirrhosis.
Cirrhosis is a slow, progressive disease characterized by permanent scarring of the liver. It is a leading cause of illness and death in the United States, affecting more than 600,000 adults each year.
Cirrhosis can be caused by a number of factors, including alcoholism, chronic hepatitis B and C, autoimmune hepatitis, bile duct disorders, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, metabolic disorders and prolonged exposure to certain chemicals and medications.
In the early stages of cirrhosis, there may not be any symptoms. As the disease worsens, symptoms can include fatigue, bruises, fever, fluid retention in the legs and abdomen, and spider-like blood vessels on the skin.
Cirrhosis is an irreversible condition and, if not treated, it can lead to gastrointestinal bleeding, jaundice, and liver cancer. Eventually, the liver could fail, requiring a liver transplant.
If you or a loved one is suffering from cirrhosis and has been (or is expected to be) out of work for at least a year, there is a possibility you could be eligible for Social Security Disability for Cirrhosis. A monthly disability check could greatly improve your quality of life, but obtaining benefits isn’t easy.

How does the Social Security Administration determine who qualifies for Disability for Cirrhosis?
In the eyes of the Social Security Administration (SSA), diagnoses doesn’t equal disability. Just because you have been diagnosed with cirrhosis doesn’t mean you will qualify for benefits. In fact, it can be difficult to meet the SSA’s strict guidelines, which focus on the damaging effects of the disease. To qualify for Disability for Cirrhosis, you must have chronic liver disease with one of the following:
- Esophageal or gastrointestinal hemorrhaging
- Excess fluid in the peritoneal cavity (ascites) or the pleural cavity (hydrothorax)
- Spontaneous bacterial peritonitis
- Hepatorenal syndrome
- Hepatopulmonary syndrome
- Hepatic encephalopathy
- End-stage liver disease
It’s important to point out that the Social Security Administration will want extensive medical information, which can be a challenge for someone in your condition. Leave this to us. We will fill out all of the paperwork and gather the necessary medical information. We’ll make the process as simple and stress-free as possible.
