On Saturday, July 16, 2016, Attorney Lyle B. Masnikoff and paralegal Karen Krasnitsky attended a Multiple Sclerosis Support Group Meeting in Wellington, Florida. The president of the group invited Mr. Masnikoff and Ms. Krasnitsky to speak to the group about Social Security Disability.
The MS support group consisted of a wide range of individuals who are personally touched in some way by multiple sclerosis. The group asked our Social Security Department to come and speak with its members so they could be educated on how the Social Security process works and what to expect. We were able to answer their questions and give them some tips on how to make the process as smooth as possible
from initial filing to preparing for a hearing with a Judge.
We also discussed the listing for Multiple Sclerosis which is evaluated under 11.09 and its requirements along with the importance of their doctor’s placing limitation on them through a RFC (residual functional capacity form). It was such a pleasure meeting with this group of individuals and coincidentally we ended up learning more about Multiple Sclerosis and the exceptional assistance the Multiple Sclerosis Society provides to
individuals suffering from this disease.
