Hepatitis C is a virus which is blood borne. It also disables a person to a point that he is unable to perform the tasks he was capable of when in good health. This is because hepatitis C is such a condition which attacks the blood and the internal organs of the body making the victim weak from within. Such cases come under the category of disability.
Now disability is such a thing which each and every person in this world has a chance of getting but very few like to think of it that way and make plans accordingly. At this point Social Security steps in. According to this sort of administration, a person who is unable to do his work for one year or exceeding that due to his disability is eligible to get cash benefits. This cash benefit can go on till the person is back in good health and is able to attend the work he was doing prior to his ill-health. These benefits can be enjoyed by a person starting from any age and also some of his family members can also get additional facilities, full details of which can be obtained from the official website of Social Security Administration.
Now let us come to hepatitis C and its relation to Social Security Disability benefits. Hepatitis C is a lethal disease, spread through blood. It is even more dangerous because of it lack of any symptoms during its initial stage such that when the infection is discovered, it becomes too late for anything to be done. This disease is caused by a number of things, most important being alcohol as the liver is the primary organ that gets damaged here. Hepatitis C is also a highly contagious disease, making the seclusion of the patient a necessity. This seclusion may prevent the person from leading a normal life and, thus, making him disabled. This is how Social Security can provide some sort of relief to a hepatitis C patient.
