Our Firm Can Help The Victims Of Multiple Sclerosis In Texas
The Social Security Administration (SSA) recognizes Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in their list of impairments and disorders that qualify for benefits in the form of Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income. Unfortunately, this does not mean someone with MS will automatically qualify for these benefits. The SSA classifies MS as a neurological disorder; in order to receive benefits, a person must prove that their MS causes sufficient impairment. There are several factors required for the SSA to grant benefits for MS, including:
- Visual impairment – If a person’s case of MS is severe enough that their eyesight registers less than 20/200 after best correction, then they may qualify for benefits.
- Persistent disorganization of motor function – This can take the form of paresis or paralysis, ataxia, tremor, or other sensory issues that occur singly or in combination.
- Mental impairment – Behavioral or psychological abnormalities judged to be related to an underlying abnormal mental state and loss of previously held functional abilities.
- Reproducible fatigue of motor function – Substantial muscle weakness following repetitive activity, able to be demonstrated upon a physical exam. This results from neurological dysfunction in areas of the brain known to be involved with the process of MS.
If you are suffering severe impairment from MS and are seeking Social Security Disability benefits, contact a Social Security Disability lawyer who is available to provide you with comprehensive help.
