Uncontrolled Epilepsy May Qualify You For Social Security Disability

If seizures or epilepsy have made it impossible for you to work, you may qualify for disability benefits from the Social Security Administration. You may have heard that satisfying the requirements for disability benefits because of seizures is difficult, but don't let that discourage you. What you need to prove is that your condition prevents you from being able to perform the duties required of you by your job.

Medical Evidence is Essential to a Successful Benefits Claim

It's essential that you include well-documented medical evidence of your epilepsy and/or seizures, particularly the fact that your seizures continue despite the fact that you're taking your medication as prescribed.
