Neurological Disorders and SSD Eligibility
Your neurological disorder has gotten worse, and you can’t pretend the pain doesn’t exist anymore. You’ve been working all your life, but your doctor says you can’t anymore. Talk with us at Binder & Binder® about your options for neurological disorder disability benefits. Our attorneys are ready to help you determine your Social Security Disability eligibility, file your application and prove your claim.
Social Security Disability benefits are available to people with many different kinds of neurological disorders including:
- Multiple sclerosis (MS)
- Seizures / seizure disorder
- Myasthenia gravis
- Neuropathy, including peripheral neuropathy
- Stroke (CVA, cerebrovascular accident)
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Neurological disorders related to spinal disorders
Whatever the type, neurological disorders can be very debilitating – debilitating enough to be considered a disability. A neurological disorder of the limbs can lead to amputations and infections. Neurological disorders can also lead to other symptoms that are so severe they keep you out of work.
Is My Neurological Disorder a Disability?
The Social Security Administration has a special definition of disability. According to the SSA, a disability is any medical condition that is expected to prevent you from working at a regular full-time job for at least 12 months.
Disability under Social Security regulations is evaluated based on your inability to work. The SSA considers you disabled when you cannot do work that you did previously and you cannot adjust to other work because of your medical conditions. Neurological disorders can be the basis for a finding of disability under SSA regulations. We can take care of the work of filing and proving your neurological disorder disability benefits claim.
If you are suffering from a disability or neurological disorders and your doctor says you can’t work anymore, talk with us at Binder & Binder®. Our Social Security Disability advocates can answer your questions you might have about mental health disability benefits and Social Security Disability including what constitutes a disability, whether your impairment might be significant enough to be deemed disabling by the Social Security Administration and whether you are eligible for benefits.
