Social Security Disability (SSD) and Multiple Sclerosis

Are you struggling with Multiple Sclerosis? You might be eligible to receive Social Security Disability benefits.

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) affects nearly 2.5 million people globally, with close to 384,000 new patients being diagnosed in the United States alone. In Texas, as much as 0.04% of the population is afflicted with MS (source). Although types and severity of MS vary, symptoms usually include muscle weakness, blurred vision, coordination difficulties, speech problems, severe fatigue, poor motor movement, lower back pain, skin lesions and rashes, changes in sensation in face or extremities, and many other potential signs. There is a genetic aspect to MS, but it is also often acquired as the result of an infection.

MS is episodic — meaning that you may go periods without experiencing any symptoms. It is also progressive -- meaning that it symptoms typically increase in severity as you age. For those who suffer from relapses regularly, or have particularly severe symptoms, winning Social Security Disability benefits is relatively straight forward.

What if my Multiple Sclerosis is not severe?

For less severe cases of Multiple Sclerosis, receiving disability benefits may be slightly more challenging. You must be ready to prove that your condition is expected to last (or has lasted) for over 1 year. Your doctor can help you with this by giving you an MRI, a spinal tap, or EEG to prove your condition.

You must also be unable to work. If you are free from symptoms for a prolonged period of time, the Social Security Administration might reject your disability claim due to your ability to hold a job.
