Question: Can I get Social Security disability for urinary incontinence?

Answer: Probably not for urinary incontinence alone, but maybe if there are other things wrong with you — and there probably are.

I suppose that Social Security figures that you can wear Depends and get by. However, anyone with urinary incontinence has it for a reason. The cause of the urinary incontinence probably affects you in more ways than the urinary incontinence alone. We’ll be happy to talk with you to try to figure out if putting it all together gives you a decent chance at getting Social Security disability.

This is one of the reasons you need an attorney to represent you on a Social Security disability claim. The health problem that may be uppermost in your mind may not be the one that Social Security will pay the most attention to. You really need someone who is familiar with the way that Social Security looks at things to talk with you and figure out what will work best for your case because it may not be what you think.

This is also an important reason why you need an attorney who will meet with you in person. There’s are a lot of things I can learn from meeting with you in person that I would never learn by just talking with you on the phone. This information can be crucial in proving disability.
