Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)
Information for Blepharospasm Patients

The Benign Essential Blepharospasm Research Foundation frequently receives inquiries from patients regarding information and support to apply for disability benefits with Social Security. To this end, BEBRF assembled these materials to assist in pursuing these benefits as efficiently as possible, equipping you with appropriate expectations and information.

The degree to which blepharospasm is disabling varies with the individual. Symptoms may or may not get worse with time and treatments may or may not continue to be effective. Some patients become so impaired by blepharospasm or other dystonia symptoms that they are unable to continue working productively and may qualify for special disability benefits under the Social Security program.

BEBRF has a packet of materials available at no charge for patients who are considering filing for disability under the Social Security Act. Below are links to some of these materials. Patients who are considering following this path are urged to contact BEBRF for the full packet.
