Epilepsy as a disability for SSDI benefits

Epilepsy is a serious medical condition that causes individuals who suffer from it to endure seizures.

What diseases qualify for compassionate allowances?

Individuals who wish to receive disability benefits from the Social Security Administration must complete applications that require them to demonstrate how their ailments meet the agency's definition of "disability."

If a person cannot satisfy each of the elements in full then they may have their request for benefits denied.

Do heart conditions qualify for Social Security disability?

The heart is possibly the most vital organ in the human body. Each day, without conscious effort, the heart of a Charlotte resident beats and pumps blood all throughout the person's corpus.

Can SSD benefits be obtained for inflammatory bowel disease?

When there is this type of illness, it is worthwhile to consider filing for Social Security disability benefits for illness. One of these illnesses, and one that can wreak havoc on a person's life, is inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Those who are diagnosed with IBD should consider filing for SSD benefits.
