Can I Get Disability Benefits for Recurrent Kidney Stones? Recurrent Kidney Stones-more properly called chronic nephrolithiasis-is an extremely painful condition. If you have ever suffered from a kidney stone, you know the pain associated with the condition; now imagine that every month or two you have to pass multiple stones. Lastly, imagine what your employer would do given your repeated absences.
The Social Security Administration lists not list chronic kidney stones as a disabling condition in the Code of Federal Regulation; however, you may still be entitled to disability benefits if your condition, in conjunction with any other physical or mental impairment, prevents you from returning to work you have done in the past and other substantial work you might be qualified to perform given your age, education and acquired work skills.
With recurrent kidney stones, the time said condition forces you to miss from work is generally what is considered disabling. Missing 2 days of work a month may not sound like much, but that is 24 days a year–one month. Your employer is not going to allow you to keep your job if you have to consistently miss this much time from work. We have handled several disability cases for clients who suffer with chronic kidney stones, and happily we were able to help them obtain the disability benefits they needed.
If you or a loved one lives in Alabama, you are suffering from the effects of chronic nephrolithiasis and you believe you are disabled as the result and are entitled to Social Security Disability or SSI benefits, you do not have to take on the Social Security Administration alone.
