Multiple Sclerosis Disability Benefits
If you have Multiple Sclerosis (MS), you should know that the Social Security Administration categorizes this as a condition that qualifies for Social Security Disability benefits.
However, like all medical conditions, you must meet certain work and medical history criteria to officially qualify for disability benefits. Learn more about the SSDI work history and medical history requirements.
To qualify for disability, Social Security requires that your disability has is expected to last 12 months. This can be an issue for patients with MS, because most forms of MS have periods of activity and inactivity.
If you are symptom-free for six months, it can be hard to prove disability, but Social Security does recognize that MS is episodic in nature, so the agency will evaluate the frequency and length of your episodes, the time between your episodes, and the presence of permanent impairments even in times of little to no symptoms, to determine if you are disabled.
If your multiple sclerosis is advanced, you have a good chance of getting approved for Social Security disability benefits.
