What Women Must Know About MA Social Security Disability for HIV

There’s no doubt about it. Men and women differ in many ways. When it comes to HIV, women experience different symptoms than men do. For women applying in Massachusetts for federal disability benefits for HIV, knowing these differences is important, and may impact your chances at having your application approved.

The Social Security Administration acknowledges that there is a difference in how HIV impacts men and women. This is taken into consideration when deciding whether your application will be approved or denied.

One of the main differences suffered by women is an increase in yeast infections. Because many women without HIV experience yeast infections, it can be difficult to show as a symptom of HIV in your application. However, it is important to include as it can have a significant impact on your ability to work.

Here are a few of the ways yeast infections in women with HIV can limit your ability to perform your job:

  • Increased doctor appointments
  • Increased risk of bacterial infections, such as pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Increased need for antibiotics delivered intravenously
  • Increased need for hospitalizations

If you are a woman who suffers from HIV, you may be eligible to receive SSDI in Boston for HIV, even though HIV does not automatically qualify as a disability under Social Security rules. To learn more about how you may be able to receive disability insurance, it is a good idea to speak with a Massachusetts SSDI attorney. At Keefe Disability Law, we will help you with your application and find ways to increase your chances of having your application approved. Call us today at 888-904-6847 to schedule your appointment and get started now.
