Multiple Sclerosis and Social Security Disability

Claims for Social Security Disability benefits are often difficult to prove under the very strict Social Security rules. A diagnosis alone does not necessarily mean that the disorder as manifested in any particular individual will meet or equal Section 11.09 of the Listings of Impairments and will result in an award of benefits.

Public Benefits Offset to Social Security Disability Benefits

An award of benefits by Social Security for a claimant’s disability may be subject to offset because of payments received from Workers’ Compensation and/or State disability benefits. Because Workers’ Compensation, State disability benefits, and Social Security are all public benefits, the general intent of the offset is to reimburse the state for public benefits paid to an injured worker if that individual also qualifies for Social Security disability.
