Can I seek SSD benefits for my seizure disorder?

Suffering from a seizure can be terrifying and utterly confusing, not only for the person experiencing the seizure, but also for those witnessing the event. A seizure disorder can also be debilitating, perhaps preventing a person in Michigan from being able to drive or work. Thankfully, Social Security disability benefits may be available for those persons suffering from seizures and seizure-related disorders, such as epilepsy.

Michigan residents may seek SSDI benefits for limb amputation

The Social Security Administration has specific and detailed requirements that applicants must meet before the agency will award Social Security disability insurance benefits.

New bill offers good news for Michigan disability beneficiaries

Michigan residents who receive disability benefits, or who are seeking to obtain benefits, may be aware of recent legal changes that have affected Social Security benefits. President Obama recently signed a federal budget bill into law that influences the current discussion about disability benefits. The bill's passage is significant SSA news, given its wide-reaching effects.
