Meniere’s disease can wreak havoc on a person’s life. The feeling of spinning, nausea, and ringing in the ears can stifle a person’s ability to work. If you have frequent episodes of Meniere’s disease, you know just how disabling it can be when one hits.
When it comes to working with Meniere’s disease, many people struggle to perform the tasks of their job during an episode. If you are unable to work as you once used to, you may qualify to receive Boston Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits for Meniere’s disease. However, there are a number of stipulations put in place by the Social Security Administration that make it difficult to ensure that you receive the disability you need.
If you have Meniere’s disease, here is what you must show in order to have your application approved:
- You must have suffered from Meniere’s disease for at least 12 months in a row
- You must show records of multiple visits to your doctor.
- You must meet the durational requirements by showing the Social Security Administration the frequency in which you are impacted by episodes of vertigo.
Meniere’s disease is unusual in that it can go for long periods of time without symptoms, and then frequent episodes can come in clusters. In severe cases, the only treatment options may be injections into your inner ear or surgery. However, many people try to control the disease with medicine. Because the disease can vary in duration, severity, and frequency, it can be confusing to know if you qualify for SSDI in Boston for Meniere’s disease. Talking to a Boston SSDI lawyer can help.
