Does the SSA Qualify Multiple Sclerosis (MS) as a Disability?
When it comes to Social Security disability benefits, those affected by advanced multiple sclerosis can benefit significantly. To qualify for these important financial resources, applicants must demonstrate that their MS has impacted the ability to work in a meaningful way – either meeting specific criteria outlined by the Social Security Administration or displaying evidence of functional limitations caused directly by MS.
How Do I Get Approved for Benefits with Multiple Sclerosis (MS)?
If you’re looking to apply for either Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI), the first step should be applying online via Social Security’s website. By filing your entire claim electronically, it is usually the speediest route – and with SSI applicants having access to get started on their application through this site as well, no one has an excuse not to file!
