Applying for Disability with HIV/AIDS

HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) and AIDS (Autoimmune Deficiency Syndrome) are autoimmune diseases that can cause system and organ failure if left untreated. HIV/AIDS are progressive diseases that can worsen over time. Often, these conditions lead to an increase in infections and viruses and may cause other disabling medical or mental conditions such as cancer or chronic, viral infections. In order to qualify for SSDI benefits due to HIV or AIDS, you must show through medical records that you were properly diagnosed by a medical professional and that you suffer from at least one of these complications:

  • Certain skin or mucus membrane conditions
  • Bacterial, viral, or fungal infections
  • Cancer
  • Protozoan or helminthic infection
  • HIV wasting syndrome
  • Chronic fungus or skin lesions
  • HIV encephalopathy
  • Chronic diarrhea

If you can show through medical records that you have suffered from any of the above complications and symptoms, then your HIV/AIDS will qualify as a disabling medical condition making you eligible to receive benefits. You may not have developed the above complications; however, you can still qualify for disability benefits if you can show that HIV/AIDS is preventing you from working like you did in the past. Long Term Disability providers will require proof of disease, but have varying criteria.
