If you have severe and frequent epileptic seizures that interfere with your daytime activities, you may be able to get disability benefits
Adults with epilepsy may be eligible for Social Security disability benefits. The Social Security Administration (SSA) mainly evaluates epilepsy according to the type, frequency, duration, and nature the seizures. Because epilepsy isn’t necessarily disabling if it’s well-controlled, you will need to prove that your epilepsy interferes with your daily activities even though you’ve taken anticonvulsant medications as prescribed for at least three months. You’ll also need to show that any alcohol or drug use isn’t contributing to your medication’s lack of effectiveness.
