Re: Sjogrens and Disability
My primary was not Sjogrens, Sjogrens came much later. But after my last re- qualification exam, I filled out a questionnaire for SSDI continuation and after that, and I included the Sjogrens on the question about new disabilities or diagnoses I was still required to have an exam for my primary disability. So I got the feeling that everything Sjogrens related was not enough to consider my disability to be qualifying. I re-qualified after my evaluation, but it was not for Sjogrens. You can find a list on the SSDI site about qualifying conditions. Be sure to check for auto-immune disorders.
