Social Security and Multiple Sclerosis

Sometimes it doesn't seem like Social Security really understands multiple sclerosis (MS) patients.

Even if Social Security doesn't get MS-- we do at McCroskey Law. Our attorneys have successfully represented many MS patients in their Social Security Disability and SSI claims. We understand the complexities of MS cases, and can guide you through the Social Security claims process.

We see so many clients who are denied Social Security Disability or SSI benefits for this frustrating, progressive disease. A big part of the problem is that many MS patients are diagnosed with "possible MS" for a long time before the condition is formally diagnosed. Sometimes MS symptoms wax and wane, and patients are blessed with periods of remission. Other times, Social Security fails to consider the severity of medication side effects and fatigue.

If you are experiencing severe problems with:

  • Motor function;
  • Visual disturbance;
  • Memory loss or other mental difficulties;
  • Speech difficulties; or
  • Severe fatigue and muscle weakness,

your multiple sclerosis may qualify you for Social Security disability or SSI benefits. Social Security does have a Listing of Impairment for multiple sclerosis. We are prepared to evaluate your claim, and can advise you whether you meet the MS Listing.

When you're dealing with MS, you shouldn't have to worry about a Social Security Disability or SSI claim. Contact us today.
