Cancer Social Security Disability Benefits
Cancer is a life-changing diagnosis - and it can be a disability. Cancer patients may find it impossible to work, not only due to the diagnosis but often the treatment for cancer can be disabling as well. But what if you and your family rely on that income?
Many people turn to a lawyer or specialized advocate for help. At Binder & Binder®, the national Social Scurity Disabilty advocates, we help thousands of clients suffering from cancer and other serious medical problems to file for cancer disability insurance and benefits.

Your Doctor and Your SSD Case
Often chemotherapy or radiation treatments can pose serious limitations on an individual. Will your treating physician be supportive of your cancer disability case? If your case is denied at the initial claim and reconsideration levels of the Social Security Disability process, it might make sense to talk about your cancer disability claim with your doctor prior to filing for Social Security Disability to find out whether he or she is supportive of the idea.
Medical record documentation of doctors' appointments, medications and treatment, and treating doctors' opinions is essential to proving you are eligible for cancer disability benefits. You may need a statement from your doctor that fully documents the limitations caused by your cancer diagnosis to support your cancer disability case. A Social Security Disability Advocate from Binder & Binder® can advise you on any further documentation you may need to improve your chances of winning your cancer disability benefits claim.
