If you are wondering if you can get disability for MS or multiple sclerosis, the answer is yes. However, it is crucial to know that filing a disability claim, especially for MS can be tough.
The person filing a disability claim must make sure he or she has been properly diagnosed. They must also keep up with regular treatment with their neurologist as the doctor needs to know which symptoms are making work hard.

What is Multiple Sclerosis?
MS is a disease that affects the brain and spinal cord. It is a progressive disease. This means someone suffering from MS will never improve. They are forever impaired. Simple everyday tasks can be hard to do for a person suffering from MS.
Some symptoms include:
- Loss of balance
- Muscle weakness
- Vision problems
- Memory/speech difficulties
Filing a Long Term Disability Claim
The insurance company will likely ask you to show up to an Independent Medical Examination (“IME”) after you file a claim. The IME will be done by a doctor paid by the disability insurance company, so it is likely they will not find you disabled.
As a result, the insurance company may deny your claim. This is where it gets tricky. This doctor may be biased because they are paid by the insurance company. This doctor has also never met you, and do not know your history. This is why their opinion should not be favored, especially over the opinion of your attending physician.
