Social Security Disability
Research has shown that up to half of CFIDS patients are
unemployed due to their illness. Many of them depend on disability insurance,
and especially programs provided by the U.S. government's Social Security
Administration (SSA), to make ends meet. The CFIDS Association publishes a free
brochure and that may help you and your doctor establish your Social Security
Disability Insurance (SSDI) case. The brochure includes information about
Supplemental Security Income (SSI), an insurance program for disabled children
or economically disadvantaged adults who have not accumulated enough years of
work to qualify for SSDI, as well as resources to help you find an attorney.
