Filing for SSD Benefits for Epilepsy
When the symptoms of epilepsy begin to affect an individual’s life so severely that they prevent an individual from maintaining sufficient employment, there is a chance this person may be eligible to recover disability benefits from the Social Security Administration (SSA). Unfortunately, the process of filing for these benefits can be exceedingly complex and, as a result, many people have their initial applications denied.
Avoid Administrative Errors that May Result in Denial of Application
Once you have determined that you or your loved one is a likely candidate for Social Security disability (SSD) benefits, you will need to be able to provide the SSA with sufficient medical documentation of your condition to be considered for these benefits. Beyond that, you will need to adequately demonstrate that symptoms related to epilepsy have prevented you or your loved one from maintaining gainful employment. That being said, our legal team can help ensure that your application will not be denied for any preventable reason in the following ways:
- We will help you collect all of the necessary documentation
- We will help ensure you have an accurate description of your financial situation
- We will help you complete your application
- We will help ensure your application is properly filed
Whatever the particulars of your situation may be, our legal team can evaluate your claim and help you take the necessary actions to file for these critical benefits.
