Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) - Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Name Change?

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and SSI claimants suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) know that they often have a tough battle convincing people of the severity of their condition. This includes administrative law judges working for the Social Security Administration who often discredit the disease like they have historically done for those suffering from fibromyalgia.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and Social Security Disability

     Social Security Disability claimants should know that on April 3, 2014, the Social Security Administration published Social Security Ruling (SSR) 14-1p, "Evaluating Claims Involving Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)" rescinding SSR 99-2p. SSR 14-1p is effective April 3, 2014. For the full text, go to SSA's website.  Pertinent parts follow below:
