A stroke is a significant medical event that can change your life, or the life of a loved one, forever. It can take years to recover from a stroke, and often the event leads to permanent limitations.
Strokes, also called cerebral vascular accidents (CVAs), can affect every part of your body. They can cause not only mental disorders but also physical disabilities. Many stroke victims are unable to return to work for a long time. Others are never able to return.
Trying to recover from a stroke is difficult enough. Now add the medical bills that are piling up because you are unable to work. Financial stress often hinders the recovery.
You may be able to find relief after a stroke. You or your loved one may qualify for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits.
Though your limitations may seem obvious to you and those around you, the Social Security Administration (SSA) may still deny your claim. The SSA denies a majority of initial applications, even when those applicants are later found disabled on appeal. You have 60 days to file an appeal, or you have to start over.
