Social Security to revisit CFS Ruling
Facebook | The CFIDS Association of America: CFIDSLink Nov09: CFS Advisory Committee Holds Timely Session
Representatives from the four of the five federal health agencies, Social Security Administration (SSA), National Institutes of Health (NIH), Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), gave brief updates. SSA's Mike O'Connor informed the Committee that they will be updating Social Security Ruling 99-2p that recognizes CFS as a potentially disabling condition to reflect medical and research advances made since 1999 when the ruling was published. He also stated that responses to 13 questions about Social Security disability received from the CFSAC were being researched and developed.
