Alzheimer’s Disease and Your Rights to Social Security Disability Benefits
Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias are progressive and, ultimately, terminal. There is no treatment that can stop or significantly delay the disease process.
If you or a loved one suffer from Alzheimer’s Disease you should apply for Social Security Disability benefits immediately. Unfortunately, the delays in the Social Security Disability system for handling the young onset of Alzheimer’s disease were discussed at an outreach Hearing with Commissioner Astrue in July 2009. A decision is expected on whether Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias can be included in the Compassionate Allowance Program.
