According to the Alzheimer’s Association, Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive and fatal brain disease. The disorder destroys brain cells, which causes memory loss and problems with thinking and behavior.
These problems can be severe enough to affect your ability to work and enjoy your day-to-day life. Alzheimer’s disease affects the neurological system and is the most common form of dementia. It has no current cure, and it affects more than 5.3 million Americans.
Fortunately, the Social Security Administration (SSA) awards Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits to individuals who are unable to maintain gainful employment due to their Alzheimer’s disease. However, proving your eligibility for SSD based on Alzheimer’s may require the assistance of a local lawyer.
Alzheimer’s was added to the list of Compassionate Allowances in 2010, which means it is a quickly identifiable condition that qualifies for expedited claims processing with minimal medical evidence.
