Early symptoms of dementia can include memory loss, difficulty performing familiar tasks, problems with language and changes in personality.
Your Rights to Social Security Disability Benefits and Dementia
The Social Security Administration doesn’t always make it easy for those with Dementia to get the Social Security Disability benefits they deserve.
It’s important that your medical records document the memory loss, difficulty performing tasks and problems with language. Psychiatric testing or other objective testing may be required to prove the diagnosis and the functional restrictions and limitations. If your doctor has diagnosed Alzheimer’s and has advised you no longer to work, you should apply for Social Security Disability benefits. Don’t let a denial discourage you from getting the Social Security Disability benefits you deserve.
