Stroke causing irreparable blindness

My son has a very stressful and specific to detail job. He is a contractor and has suffered a stoke, losing sight in his right eye. He had a heart attack two years ago and struggled to keep working as he has a family to support. He has had two warnings and needs time to heal, the next episode could be fatal. What are the chances of getting disability allowance and/or medicare?

Hi there,

Hi there,
he may be eligible for benefits, however it may be a good idea to contact a disability advocate or attorney about his case because either one would be able to help with the application and appeal his case if needed. You can get in touch with one by filling out this form:
