I have multiple sclerosis -- do I qualify for disability benefits?

In recent years we have heard a lot about multiple sclerosis (commonly known as MS). This condition, in very basic terms, has to do with the body’s immune system attacking the body’s central nervous system. The central nervous system is made up of optic nerves, the brain and the spinal cord. It can be really hard to diagnose MS because there are no symptoms, lab tests or physical findings that alone can determine if a person has the condition.

When we look at the types of people that receive Social Security Disability benefits, we quickly realize that there are tons of different cases and reasons for why individuals need these benefits. Our readers may think that most of the individuals who get these benefits are elderly, but that’s definitely not the case.

Rural areas challenging for disabled workers

A recent news article from another state touches on a very interesting topic relating to Social Security Disability Insurance. The article discusses the need for disability benefits for those individuals that live in rural areas of a state. Because these areas are more remote, there often tends to be fewer jobs and a smaller variety of jobs that are available.
