What Are My Chances of Being Approved for SSDI Benefits with Fibromyalgia?
For years, many individuals suffering from fibromyalgia were turned away in their pursuit of disability benefits. Fortunately, the Social Security Administration has stepped up with a special ruling to provide clarity on how such cases should be evaluated – resulting in increased approval rates for people managing this challenging disorder.
How Do I Get Approved for Benefits with Fibromyalgia?
Are you living with fibromyalgia and wondering how to qualify for disability benefits? To apply, consider the qualifications of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). SSDI may offer more generous monthly payments; however your work history must meet specific criteria. On the other hand, if you have little income and few assets below set limits then SSI could be available regardless of past employment experience.
