Disability insurance companies don’t always make it easy for policyholders who have Ehlers-Danlos syndrome to get the disability benefits they deserve.
How Do Disability Carriers View Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome Disability Claims?
Many disability claims for Ehlers-Danlos syndrome are denied because the disability insurance company says:
(1) There is no objective basis of the Ehlers-Danlos syndrome diagnosis,
(2) There is no objective basis for the restrictions and limitations assigned by your physician, or
(3) There is no causal relationship between your Ehlers-Danlos diagnosis and/or your restrictions and limitations, and your inability to do your own or any occupation.

What Is Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome?
Connective tissue provides strength and elasticity to the structures of the body. Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, an inherited disorder, affects the connective tissue, in particular the skin, joints and blood vessels. A severe form is vascular Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, which causes ruptures in the walls of blood vessels, the intestines, or the uterus.
What Are The Symptoms of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome?
Signs and symptoms, which vary from person to person, can include:
These symptoms can make it difficult, if not impossible, to work.
What Are The Complications Of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome?
More often than not, it’s the complications of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome that are key to winning your claim. These complications can include joint dislocations and the early onset of arthritis as a result of overly flexible joints. Fragile skin can result in cuts and wounds that are difficult to heal. Vascular Ehlers-Danlos syndrome can result in ruptures of major blood vessels.
How Do I Get The Disability Insurance Benefits I Deserve?
Ehlers-Danlos syndrome can interfere with your daily activities and with your ability to work. For example, you may have joint dislocations, or you may have difficulty walking or using your hands as a result of your overly flexible joints.
