Applying for disability benefits for fibromyalgia

Many individuals living with fibromyalgia may have difficulty working due to symptoms associated with fibromyalgia such as pain and fatigue, as well as others. A recent survey by the National Pain Report found that 58 percent of those surveyed in their fibromyalgia survey reported they cannot work because of fibromyalgia symptoms. Individuals who are unable to work because they suffer from fibromyalgia may be able to apply and qualify for Social Security disability benefits, however, they may face a challenge getting approved.

Understanding Medicaid and disability benefits

Disabled individuals facing certain challenges should be familiar with both disability options and options that may help them with their health care needs. Medicaid is a health insurance program for low income individuals and individuals of limited resources that is both state and federally funded. Medicaid is available to disabled individuals, as well as aged individuals, the blind and children who are eligible to receive federally assisted income maintenance payments.

What is the Social Security Disability application process like?

The process of applying for Social Security Disability (SSD) Insurance benefits can be difficult, so Georgians may wonder what they should know as a disabled individual to apply for disability benefits. It is best to apply as soon as possible once they become disabled if they discover they will be disabled for a period of time expected to last longer than a year.
