Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and Social Security Disability

Posted June 27, 2014

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a neural degenerative disease usually affecting the muscles.  In the United States, it is also called “Lou Gehrig’s Disease.”  People with ALS get progressively weaker, often degenerating rapidly, and the disease impacts multiple body functions including the ability to speak and breathe and eat.

Because of the devastating effects of this disease and its rapid progression it is one of the ailments recognized by the Social Security Administration deserving of immediate approval for disability . Unfortunately, sometimes the communication process is lacking and the deserving claimants are denied benefits when the government employees in the disability process do not recognize it for what it is.
