I received a kidney in Sept.

I received a kidney in Sept. of 2016. due to problems after the transplant I considered retiring. I went to SSI office to get an evaluation of my retirement benefits. I could have sworn the woman told me that in addition to SSI benefits that I would qualify for some disability benefits. Was I hearing things correctly?

Hi Nathaniel,

Hi Nathaniel,

Your brother may qualify for disability benefits if the transplant has left him unable to work. He needs to meet the medical qualifications under the SSA's Blue Book listing 6.00 and have enough work credits. The Blue Book is available online to review.

I just received a letter for

I just received a letter for possible jury duty within the next year. I also had a kidney transplant on 7/30/18 after 5 years of hemodialysis. Also, because of severe hearing loss in both ears I was given a lifetime exemption back in the late 70’s. So now I’m worried that I will have to do jury duty. Do I meet the disability criteria because of my recent transplant? I know this forum pertains to disability benefits but hopefully this question can be answered. Thank you!

I received a kidney

I received a kidney transplant in January of this year. I'm 72 years old and receiving retirement social security. Will the kidney transplant SS disability for the transplant effect my monthly regular Social Security? Can I receive both?

Hi Dan,

Hi Dan,

Unfortunately, you will not be able to receive SSDI since you are over the age of 66.
