I am in stage 3 hidradenitis and I was approved the first time I tried for SS benefits, as well as private disability insurance. The main key that I have found is documentation. Even when I didn't need a boil lanced by the doctor, I went in and had them chart it, sometimes take pictures, etc. It helped a lot.
I have hidradenitis and i was wondering the same thing will i be able to get ssi?
I have had hidradenitis suppurativa since I started my cycle at 13 I'm 34 and for the last 8 years I have been receiving social security disability because I have had over 20 surgeries and I was recently diagnosed with Psoriasis of the scalp so yes u can receive benefits just make sure u keep ur appointments, pictures and documentation
