Obtaining Social Security Benefits After A Stroke

People who have suffered strokes can suffer a wide range of cognitive, physical and emotional impairments. Some may have difficulty walking, using their hands or speaking; others may have impaired reasoning skills or suffer depression or emotional problems. Though some victims of strokes and transient ischemic attacks can recover, others may suffer lasting effects.

If these effects have prevented a loved one from working for more than 12 months, he or she may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI or SSD) benefits. However, a significant percentage of initial SSDI claims are denied. Your loved one may need the services of an experienced Social Security Disability attorney to obtain benefits.
