Understanding disability benefits for migraines

When you suffer from severe migraines in Michigan, you may feel that your only option is to take medication and push through the pain. However, migraines may sometimes be so intense that you are able to qualify for Social Security Disability benefits. We at Adler Stilman, PLLC, understand that sometimes it is difficult to know if you qualify for these benefits or not.

While you may think that any kind of severe headache would qualify for SSD benefits, this is not the case. says that chronic cluster headaches, hormone headaches and migraines are among the types which may be covered under SSD. There are many ways that the Social Security Administration decides if you are eligible for disability benefits. If your migraines are so severe that you cannot fulfill your usual work tasks or are unable to work at all, you may qualify.

When you submit your claim to the SSA, it is important to make sure that you pay attention to all deadlines. Your claim may not initially be approved, and if you want to appeal the SSA’s decision, you usually need to file your paperwork within 60 days. Additionally, you should typically be honest about the severity of your migraines, as your medical records will likely be closely scrutinized by the SSA.

Your migraines have the ability to affect your daily life for several years. Because of this, you may want to consider seeking help when you fill out your application for disability benefits. More information about this subject can be found on our webpage.
