Side effects of MS could qualify patients for SSDI

A diagnosis of multiple sclerosis can cause any Minnesota resident to feel taken aback. This condition can cause numerous health issues, and it can also cause diminished abilities that leave individuals with the condition unable to work. As a result, many people with MS hope to qualify for SSDI in order to receive financial benefits that could help them meet their daily needs.

Though MS is categorized by the Social Security Administration as a chronic illness that can have disabling outcomes, it is still not easy for individuals with this condition to qualify for SSDI benefits. In some cases, MS may not show enough significant symptoms for a person to be considered unable to work. As a result, an application for benefits could be denied.

However, MS is a condition that can cause a rapid decline in a person's abilities. If MS patients have any of the following health issues stemming from the progression of their illness, they may be more likely to receive an approval for benefits from the SSA:

  • Visual impairment
  • Difficulty speaking
  • Physical impairment, like trouble walking
  • Diminished fine motor skills
  • Excessive fatigue
  • Memory problems

Of course, each person's condition progresses at a different rate and has different specific effects. If Minnesota residents are experiencing disabling effects of MS, they may want to consider their options for applying for SSDI. It is important to remember that even if a person receives a denial initially, appealing that denial is typically an option. An appeal, if needed, could help struggling individuals get the financial assistance they need.
