Official Transcript: Social Security Disability Benefits for Tremors

Hi, I’m Sharon Christie your nurse attorney for Social Security Disability Benefits. I want to talk about tremors. I’ve had a lot of clients who have
suffered from tremors for different
reasons and they’ll always tell me, oh yeah you know I have tremors and they want to know if that’s going to be a part of the case. 
Well, it depends on what the cause of the
tremors is. So for some amount of people,
particularly as they get older, they
develop a condition called a central
tremor and it does involve some degree
of shakiness usually at the hands. Sometimes it can be the head but at least in the cases that I have seen it’s usually been mild and it’s not anything that would be so severe it would prevent
you from being able to work.
On the other hand, if you have a condition like
Parkinson’s that can involve tremors and
it can involve tremors at a severe level. So in a case where someone is
suffering from Parkinson’s when we look
at all of the symptoms that that person
is suffering from we certainly look very
closely at the question first
do you have tremors?  If so let’s look
at how severe they are.
  • Do they affect your ability to hold objects?
  • To drink liquids?
  • To use a keyboard?
  • To use a phone?
  • Can you button buttons?
  • Can you open jars?
Those are the kinds of things
that we’re looking at. In any case that
involves tremors to try to figure out
how the tremors affect your daily
function. And then, of course, look at and
how that would affect your function on
the job. So tremors can be a significant
disabling condition it just depends on
the severity of your case.

The Path to Social Security Disability Benefits with Sharon Christie Law

Step 1: Understanding Social Security’s Definition of Disabled

The definition of disabled, according to Social Security, is that you have severe limitations from your health problems that keep you from doing any kind of work for at least 12 consecutive months. This is the first thing we look at when evaluating your case. Your diagnosis is just the starting point. To get disability benefits for you, we must prove that your disabling condition causes severe limitations in your day to day activities.

Step 2: Medical Records in Your Disability Case

You must have medical evidence to prove your disability case. The most important evidence is your medical records that show your diagnosis, your symptoms, and your response to treatment.
