Wilson’s disease and long-term disability benefits
People who develop Wilson’s disease, the rare disorder that occurs when excessive copper exists in vital organs, may find it impossible to continue working if they experience severe complications from the disorder. In this situation, those suffering may be eligible for long-term disability benefits. Some consequences of Wilson’s disease that may affect people long-term are:
• Liver damage that results in liver failure.
• Severe kidney problems.
• Recurring neurological and mental problems may occur, even in those undergoing treatment.
Though the disorder can be detected and treated in the early stage, some workers who suffer from complications of Wilson’s disease may need to undergo expensive and complicated surgery procedures to recover.
In this difficult situation, you may be entitled to apply for long-term disability benefits that could be critical to covering the costs of medications.
