I'm using the following:

\documentclass[11pt]{article}
\usepackage[bottom,flushmargin,hang,multiple]{footmisc}
\title{Title}
\author{Joe Blow\footnote{Address}}
\begin{document}
\maketitle
Hello.\footnote{This is a footnote.}
\end{document}

Unfortunately the flushmargin option does not affect the footnote on the author. I would imagine there is a solution similar to the answer here, but I do not know the coding well enough to adapt it or come up with something else.

This seems to work, at least if the footnote to the author is short.

\documentclass[11pt]{article}
\usepackage[bottom,flushmargin,hang,multiple]{footmisc}
\usepackage{etoolbox}
\makeatletter
\patchcmd\maketitle{\hb@xt@1.8em}{\hbox}{}{}
\makeatother

\begin{document}


\title{Title}
\author{Joe Blow\footnote{Address}}

\maketitle

Hello.\footnote{This is a footnote.}

\end{document}

enter image description here

Yes, it works, thanks! –  JWells May 7 '13 at 19:32
    
Works great indeed! There's a problem when using the footnotebackref package as well. Add it right below the \makeatother. For its functionality to be visible, you might want to add \newpage\null right above \end document as well. Then you see the author footnote is not getting the footnotebackref functionality. –  Erik Apr 15 at 17:42
