|AIDS = DISABILITY??
Jan 3, 2006
I have a disability plan provided by work. If I am currently working but recently received an AIDS diagnosis would I be considered to be disabled?
Response from Ms. Franzoi
An AIDS diagnosis doesn't necessarily qualify a person for disabilty. In order to receive disability benefits, a person must be unable to perform the duties of his own occupation and under certain plans, any occupation for which he is reasonably qualified, in order to be determined to be disabled.
