How Do I Collect SSDI With HIV Or AIDS?

Tomorrow is World AIDS Day. World AIDS Day is an event held annually on December 1. It is a global health day that brings together people from around the world to show support for those living with HIV and AIDS and remember those who have died. According to, estimates show that 34 million people worldwide are living with HIV or AIDS.

Ways that people show support and remembrance on World AIDS Day include:

  • Wearing a red ribbon, which are available here;
  • Raising money for the National AIDS Trust (NAT);
  • Organizing fundraising efforts, such as selling red ribbons or holding a bake sale.

Can I Collect SSDI If I Have HIV or AIDS?              

The Social Security Administration (SSA) does accept applications from people suffering from HIV or AIDS. These applications are generally processed quickly. AIDS or HIV patients often must provide the SSA with laboratory evidence to obtain Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI).

The SSA will usually ask claimants about symptoms to determine whether their illness makes it impossible for them to work. The development of effective treatments for people suffering from HIV and AIDS over the past few decades have helped people remain healthy for extended periods, allowing them to work. Although this is wonderful news for those living with the virus, it can stand in the way of AIDS and HIV sufferers’ ability to collect disability benefits.

We offer free evaluations of your case to those interested in receiving SSDI. Our firm can show you how to collect SSDI with AIDS or HIV.



    I didn't think there was a caring professional considerate attorney firm on the planet, but Troutman & Troutman proved me wrong. From the receptionist to the legal assistance to the attorney and more they were exceptional people.

    They did a fantastic job getting everything gathered up and getting the trial done as quickly as possible. Anytime I had a question they were patient and help me understand what was going on. Especially Christy and Charlie were great.

    Steve Troutman was able to get my short-term and long-term disability for me. Then Erin another lawyer for their firm got my Social security disability for me. Great people.

    - Billy S.

    Mr. Troutman walked me through the entire process. Heather was available each time I called, answered all my crazy questions, and helped me fill out forms along the way. I was never treated like I was wasting time.

    Erin and Keith were fabulous! They were compassionate, helpful, and very responsive! They made the process very smooth and painless every step of the way.
