Neurological disorders can be particularly debilitating, as the neurological system is very important to ensure that everything in the body works correctly. It conveys the messages from the brain to the rest of the body and also controls senses and other important functions. There are many different types of neurological disorders. People may suffer from epilepsy, Parkinson disorder, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis and spinal cord disorders, for examples. These all have different symptoms, but all can completely change a person’s life.

People who suffer from these disorders may be able to obtain Social Security Disability benefits. These benefits can be very important when people are unable to work and do not have an income. However, before they receive the benefits, they must apply for the benefits and provide evidence of the disorder.

The evidence required is medical history, results of examination and lab tests, MRIs, EEG and other medical evidence. There also must be evidence of the prescribed treatment the people are using and evidence of how they are responding to it. In addition to the medical evidence, there will also be statements made regarding how the disorder affects people’s lives.

Unfortunately, many people in Georgia suffer from various neurological disorders which can affect people’s lives in many ways. One of these ways is that people may not be able to work and earn money, which can create financial difficulties in addition to the physical ones. People may be able to receive SSDI benefits due their condition, which can help ease the financial burden.
