Gain Peace of Mind with Monthly Benefits
Diabetes impacts every aspect of your life, from your relationships to your hobbies and your work. In fact, you may not be able to work anymore if your diabetes is severe enough.
While you know you need to focus on your health first, you can’t help but feel stressed. If you can’t work, how are you going to pay your bills?
Social Security Disability benefits offer monthly income and access to Medicare or Medicaid health coverage so that you can cover your basic expenses and not have to worry so much.
It can be difficult to win benefits, however. The Social Security Administration (SSA) denies most people when they first apply for benefits.
The disability lawyers at The Robertson Wendt Disability — Finkel Law Firm LLC work with disability applicants every day, and know what it takes to help you win benefits.
Robertson Wendt is one of few disability attorneys in South Carolina who have board certification in disability law. Our disability law firm is dedicated to helping people who can’t work because of health conditions, including diabetes.

Qualifying for Disability Benefits for Diabetes
You’ll need to prove that your diabetes symptoms have gotten so bad that you’ll have to leave your most recent work for at least a year, and you can’t switch to another line of work in the meantime.
Your proof could come in these forms:
- Medical test results
- Doctors’ reports
- A list of diabetes medicine you’re taking
- Details about your diet and exercise plan
- Testimonies from people who are familiar with your situation, like co-workers and friends
- Details of the demands of your past jobs
