Benefits Can Make a Difference in Your Life
Besides the pain, fibromyalgia comes with maddening frustration.
It’s often called an “invisible” disease.” To people who pass you by on the street—or even people who know you—you may look perfectly fine. It can be hard to convince some people you even have a real problem.
But inside, the constant, extreme pain is more than real. It can be so severe, it prevents you from working to support yourself like you’ve always done.
If you can’t work, you can’t pay your regular bills, not to mention all the specialist bills and prescriptions you need because of fibromyalgia.
Social Security Disability benefits (SSD) were designed to help people like you. You can get monthly checks to help with important expenses—and qualify for Medicare health insurance. These benefits can help you return to living in peace.
But it’s hard to win benefits. Most people are denied. Get help from someone who knows their way through Social Security’s complicated appeals process. At Rosenfeld & Morgan, we’ve helped thousands of people win benefits.
Social Security Disability is all we do.
What You Must Prove to Win Disability for Fibromyalgia
To win disability checks for fibromyalgia, you must prove, using medical evidence, that you have symptoms like the ones below. The symptoms can be similar to rheumatoid arthritis or lupus:
- Full-body pain
- Chronic exhaustion
- Digestive issues
- Difficulty sleeping, such as insomnia
- Depression and/or anxiety
- Difficulty concentrating, which people nicknamed “fibro fog”
With fibromyalgia, or any medical condition, you have to meet three general qualifications for Social Security Disability:
- You can’t keep working because of your health condition.
- You can’t transfer to a new line of work.
- You won’t be able to work for at least a year.
You don’t have to pay anything for Rosenfeld & Morgan to review your situation and tell you what it will take to win benefits.
How to Prove Your Disability for Fibromyalgia Claim
Appealing your Social Security Disability denial means filling out a lot of forms and turning in a lot of documents. When you work with Rosenfeld & Morgan on your fibromyalgia disability claim, we take care of all the paperwork for you.
The most important part of proving your claim is the medical evidence you provide. In 2012, the Social Security Administration (SSA) outlined what you need to make a successful claim for disability for fibromyalgia:
- Reports from all your doctors and specialists outlining the symptoms you experience
- Complete records of all the treatments you’ve received
- Testimony from employers, family, friends and neighbors about how fibromyalgia has severely changed your life
Fibromyalgia robs you of the energy you need to put in the work it takes to win disability benefits. Let Rosenfeld & Morgan handle your claim, so you can focus on your health. We’re dedicated to providing personal attention to people like you in South Bend and all over Indiana and Michiana.
You’re understandably worried about money, but you pay no attorney fee until you win benefits.
Fibromyalgia has no cure, but when you’re living with this condition, disability benefits can make a difference in your life.
