Chronic Pain & Social Security

Living With Chronic Pain: Do You Qualify for SSD or SSI? Contact an Attorney

Chronic conditions of pain, whether resulting from injury, illness or otherwise, often go hand in hand with financial needs and inability to work. You may be eligible for Social Security Disability or Supplemental Security Income if you live with pain for any of these reasons:

  • You were attacked, you fell or you were in a car accident and you suffered a head injury or broken bone.
  • Although your concussion or bone has healed, you now experience ongoing nerve pain or mental pain.
  • A catastrophic injury left you partially paralyzed or otherwise disabled. Numbness, tingling and pain are present in some areas of your body.
  • You suffered a stroke or heart attack, and pain issues continue.
  • You are living with cancer and must cope with pain.
  • You have been diagnosed with a chronic ailment such as fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome.
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome, crippling arthritis or some other chronic ailment impairs your ability to function physically, emotionally or vocationally.

If you are fortunate enough to have a healthy spouse or other close family member, that person may make it possible for you to continue to live as a normal member of a community in spite of your chronic pain and disability. Or you may be living in a homeless shelter. Whatever your situation, if chronic pain plagues you and you need financial support, you are encouraged to contact an attorney whose law practice is focused on injury, illness and disability.
