Speak With a Legal Representative

If you suffer from MS and are unable to work, you may be a good candidate for Social Security Disability benefits. A Social Security attorney or advocate may be able to further assist you with any questions you may have, help you collect proper documentation, and represent your disability claim on your behalf.
