Neurological Disorders and Social Security
Neurological disorders are those which affect the brain, spinal cord, and nervous system. There are over 600 types of neurological disorders, with some having minor effects on daily life and others becoming totally disabling. Because these disorders affect essential functions such as movement, speech, breathing, memory, and mood, it is often necessary for sufferers to seek Social Security Disability benefits.
If you or someone you love has a neurological disorder and needs SSDI, it is important to have an experienced lawyer to help you get the benefits you need. Applying for and receiving Social Security Disability can be a difficult and confusing process. The Indianapolis Social Security attorneys of the Hankey Law Office are here to help.

Types of Neurological Disorders that Qualify for Social Security Disability
Qualifications for Social Security Disability benefits are listed in the official Social Security handbook known as the “Blue Book”. This book lists the conditions that must be met for certain neurological disorders to be considered significantly disabling. Some of the most common neurological problems that qualify include:
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Myasthenia Gravis
- Seizure Disorder
- Stroke (Cerebrovascular Accident)
If you have one of these or another disabling neurological disorder, you may qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits.
Neurological disorders are serious conditions which can significantly affect a person’s ability to perform work-related tasks.
