November 2014 is national Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness/Family Caregiver Month. In keeping with my habit of matching my Texas social security disability blog posts to disease awareness months, I would like to focus on Early-Onset Alzheimer’s Disease and Social Security Disability. Alzheimer’s Disease, we all know, is a degenerative brain condition associated with aging. It is a form of dementia: all Alzheimer’s is dementia, but not all dementia is Alzheimer’s. Since social security disability benefits are not available to those under full benefit social security retirement age (i.e, age 66), I confine this post to Early-Onset Alzheimer’s Disease, which affects people younger than age 65. It is estimated that up to 5 percent of the more than 5 million Americans with Alzheimer’s have early onset Alzheimer’s. Actress Julianne Moore portrayal of an Early-Onset Alzheimer’s Disease victim in the coming movie “Still Alice” will be released in January 2015 and is already generating “Oscar buzz”.
