Social Security Criteria for HIV-Related Disability Beneifts are Outdated; IOM Report Recommends New Criteria to Make Claim Reviews More Accurate and Fair
Released: 9/13/2010

The U.S. Social Security Administration's HIV Infection Listings — the criteria it uses when determining whether people with HIV are disabled by their infection and eligible for benefits — do not reflect the evolution of HIV/AIDS from a fatal disease to a chronic condition, says a new report from the Institute of Medicine. The report recommends new criteria to update the HIV Infection Listings and make the claims review process more accurate and fair.
