Disability Benefits and MS

Posted on March 02, 2018

MS is a chronic condition that may qualify you for disability benefits. Some with MS have found that the process to apply for disability is long and frustrating. Hearing tips and receiving support from others in your shoes may make it easier.

On MyMSTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with multiple sclerosis, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Disability Benefits are one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are a few question-and-answer threads about disability benefits:

I'm worried my disability benefits will not be continued. What are others' experiences with disability benefits?

Can anyone tell me the process for SSD?

Here are some conversations about disability benefits:

He/we were in the Army for 20 years. I should have joined when I graduated so I could get 100% disability when diagnosed.

I was denied SSDI again. It is so frustrating!

Astoundingly I was approved for SSDI with my first application. I'm happy that I had an experienced neurologist when applying.

Have another topic you'd like to discuss or explore? Go to MyMSTeam today and start the conversation. You'll be surprised just how many others may share similar stories.

Feel free to ask a question here.
