This article documents the Progression of Disability Benefits (PODB) for a sample of 201 employees with multiple sclerosis (MS) vs. a large sample of employees with diverse disabilities (n = 77,096) and another neurology group employee sample with epilepsy (n = 59). Among the most interesting findings is the dramatic movement for the MS sample to Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) - 35.3% for the MS sample vs. 3.8% for the general disability sample and 8.5% forthe epilepsy sample. Implications of these findings are discussed for better serving the needs of employees with MS onset.
