Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease and SSD benefits

Tennessee residents who have been diagnosed with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease could qualify for disability benefits from the Social Security Administration. Though the SSA Blue Book does not specifically list Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, the disease is still considered a valid neurological impairment that could be a qualifying factor on a person's disability application.

How age and education affect disability benefits

Social Security disability can be an important safeguard for people in Tennessee who are no longer able to work due to physical or mental disabilities. However, the application process can be lengthy, especially as many applicants are denied in the first step of the process. There are a number of factors that the Social Security Administration considers when determining if a person is eligible for disability benefits, and many applicants may wonder how their age or level of education affects the likelihood of a positive outcome. Both factors can be part of a disability determination but are rarely decisive factors that shift the balance of a decision.
