Will Standard for HIV Change for Social Security?

The Institute of Medicine has published a new standard for HIV infections, in order to qualify for Social Security Disability. The new standard would be a T-cell count of less than 50. Additionally, rather than receiving lifetime benefits, recipients would be eligible for benefits for 3 year increments.

According to Social Security Disability Attorney Randy Zeldin, Esq., of Boca Raton, this proposal is likely to cause considerable controversy. Social Security Attorney Randy Zeldin, Esq., believes that this is the beginning of major revisions of “listed impairments” for many other conditions.
