Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is a complicated, confusing condition that hinders your ability to function. Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits may give you the leeway you need to focus on your health.
Benefits include monthly checks to help you cover your basic expenses. So if chronic fatigue leaves you unable to work, you can still hold on to a measure of peace and stability in your life.
But getting benefits for CFS can be tricky.
You have to make your case to Social Security that you can’t work at all. With chronic fatigue, a condition without a known cause that can’t be tied to any another condition, applying for Social Security disability takes special care.
The Social Security Administration (SSA) says they won’t award disability benefits based on you alone telling them about your exhaustion and inability to restore your energy.
You have to prove that your fatigue makes it impossible to work, using types of medical evidence Social Security will accept.
But you don’t have to do it alone. In Hanley Disability, you have an advocate who will help you every step of the way. In fact, Social Security Disability is all we do.
