Like many other illnesses, Huntington’s disease can strike without warning—changing a person’s life forever. In the days, weeks, and months following a diagnosis of Huntington’s disease, it is important to plan for the future. Although it is important to discuss medical and supportive care options, you should also make financial plans.
If you or a loved one has Huntington’s disease, it may become necessary to apply for Social Security Disability benefits. Disability benefits can provide financial support to those who can no longer work due to disability or illness.
