Decisions on proposed changes for Social Security Disability HIV and neurological disorders listings will be delayed allowing an extended comment period. The Social Security Administration (SSA) issued a correction to the proposed changes to the HIV infection listings, which extends the comment period. The correction removes changes to listings 113.00 that were inadvertently included in the NPRM and extends the deadline for submitting comments from April 28, 2014 to May 27, 2014.
The SSA has also reopened the comment period for the proposed changes to the neurological disorders listings. The comment period has been extended by 30 days to June 2, 2014.
I have discussed qualifying for SSD or SSI benefits for various neurological disorders in the past. For instance, for information about qualifying for peripheral neuropathies click here or for Myasthenia gravis click here.
