Advocacy Goals

In 2002 the Social Security’s Policy Interpretation Ruling on Interstitial Cystitis (IC) recognized IC as a condition that can be used as a basis for a disability finding, and it guides the agency’s evaluation of IC claims. The ICA continues to advocate for the safeguarding of SSDI by:

  • Monitoring SSA policy and regulations to safeguard IC disability rights.
  • Alerting the IC community to any changes in SSA policy and procedures.
