Comments (0)

For people suffering from blood conditions such as aplastic anemia, obtaining disability benefits may be a necessary lifeline to help them survive financially while they recover from or treat their conditions. Fortunately, aplastic anemia is a condition recognized by the Social Security Administration. Those who have had a stem cell or bone marrow transplant to treat their condition may have an advantage when submitting their application.

Social Security Disability Benefits and Aplastic Anemia

Applying for Social Security disability benefits for complications caused by aplastic anemia is important in order to ensure that you obtain the financial assistance you need, both today and in the future. In order to maximize your chances for receiving the benefits you deserve, it is necessary to understand the rules that relate to the process. The following is a general overview:

  1. Applicants suffering from aplastic anemia who have received a stem cell or bone marrow transplant are evaluated as if they had received an organ transplant.
  2. These applicants are automatically considered disabled for a period of one year.
  3. After the year expires, the condition is monitored on a periodic basis. Common time frames range from every year to every three years.
  4. Applicants are monitored to determine whether their condition has improved enough to allow them to resume working at some type of gainful employment.
