Can I receive SSD benefits for memory loss?

It is natural for California residents to forget things sometimes. After all, hectic schedules make things slip from the mind all the time. Additionally, it can even be a sign of natural aging or, unfortunately, something more traumatic, such as a brain injury, emotional trauma, inflammation of the brain or stress. Regardless of the cause, it can be categorized as short-term, immediate or long-term.

When someone does not remember events that took place recently, such as minutes or even seconds ago, this can be classified as short-term memory loss. Although they cannot recall things that just took place, someone suffering from this condition may be able to clearly remember events that took place in their childhood. Sufferers of long-term memory loss, on the other hand, may be able to clearly remember where they placed their keys a few minutes ago but may not remember what happened a number of years ago.

Memory loss is not only categorized by forgetting things. People also feel confused, have unpredictable mood changes, are commonly misplacing items, may have trouble following directions and may not remember how to use common items. This can make it difficult to work and, depending on the situation, even impossible. If someone cannot remember directions or instructions at a workplace, they are not only a danger to themselves but also to others.

There are certain requirements that must be met in order to qualify to receive Social Security Disability benefits for memory impairment. A qualifying condition must be such that it causes a marked restriction of daily activities and causes difficulty problems in concentration, among other requirements. An experienced attorney may be able to help those in this situation by telling them how to proceed to get the SSD benefits they deserve.
