My daughter had been diagnosed with rheumatic fever and her joints now swell after standing too long. She can only work part time at her job as a greeter at a resturant due to the swelling. She wants to work more hours but just can't physically do it. Is she eligible for partial disability?
1 Answer from Attorneys
You need to ask her doctor if she is partially disabled due to her condition and have the doctor fill out the appropriate paperwork. Then, consult with a social security disability attorney in your area. The attorney will guide you from there.
Alternatively, you can try to handle this yourself. Check this link for starters: http://www.ssa.gov/chicago/dds.htm
