I Have Multple Sclerosis Can I Get Social Security Disability

If you have multiple sclerosis and are unable to work full time you may be entitled to get social security disability benefits. You must prove you can not work full time for at least one year.

Some judges are very difficult to get benefits awarded as they do not understand that some people have good and bad days. They judge you by your good days. That's where it's the job of a skilled social security disability lawyer to educate the judge and provide proof about the effects of multipe sclerosis.

Here is a great resource site people can go to if the have multiple sclerosis and want help and support.

You can prove you are disabled in two ways. One is if you meet a listing . Here is the listing for multiple sclerosis for social security disability.

11.09 Multiple sclerosis. With:

A. Disorganization of motor function as described in 11.04B; or

B. Visual or mental impairment as described under the criteria in 2.02, 2.03, 2.04, or 12.02; or

C. Significant, reproducible fatigue of motor function with substantial muscle weakness on repetitive activity, demonstrated on physical examination, resulting from neurological dysfunction in areas of the central nervous system known to be pathologically involved by the multiple sclerosis process.

However many MS victims do not meet this listing . But if you can show that you will miss 3 days a month from work that may be enough to prove you can not competitively hold down a job.

Here is the Social security checklist they use to evaluate your case in a specific order:

1. Are you now working at some competitive level? This is called sustained gainful employment . generally if you are making over $1000 per month that can be gainful employment. so you still may be able to work a little and qualify.

2. If you are not working, is your condition severe? Don't worry about this step. Almost every condition is severe.

3. If you condition is severe, does your condition meet a medical listing?
