Social Security Publishes New Rules on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

With the publication of a Social Security ruling on April 3, 2014, the Social Security Administration made new rules as to how disability claims for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) would be determined to be disabling or not.  This ruling clarifies their policy on how they develop evidence that a person has a medically determinable impairment (MDI) of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and how they evaluate this impairment in disability claims and continuing disability reviews.

CFS is considered disabling when accompanied by medical signs or laboratory findings, This policy interpretation clarifies how Social Security disability decision-makers should apply the new regulations in determining whether a person claiming benefits based on CFS is disabled.
