Living with fibromyalgia is challenging on its own. You may often feel pain on different parts of your body without knowing why it’s happening.
On top of all that, your condition is often misconstrued, and people don’t understand why you can’t just get up and go to work every day like everyone else.
At least financially, there is a form of relief. Social Security Disability benefits can provide you with monthly checks to cover your bills and other necessities. You can better support yourself and your family with this much-needed assistance-and cut down on your stress.
The thing is, it’s notoriously difficult to get Social Security Disability benefits. Most applicants are denied and give up. Then what?
Don’t worry. Help is here. The disability lawyers at Horenstein, Nicholson & Blumenthal have helped thousands of people in Ohio win benefits.

If you can’t work before you hit retirement age due to your fibromyalgia, you could qualify for Social Security Disability. The Social Security Administration (SSA) has two programs, with varying criteria depending on your income and work history. They are:
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI): This is a form of insurance policy for people who have worked enough to receive “work credits,” especially in the 10 years before they need to apply for benefits. The number of credits is different depending on your age. In other words, your SSDI coverage kicks in when you pay a certain amount into the system through Social Security deductions from your paychecks.
Supplemental Security Income (SSI): SSI is for people who do not have substantial recent work history. SSI will evaluate your assets and income, and if they fall under a certain amount, you may qualify.
For both types of benefits, you must have serious health problems that make it impossible for you to work.
