Breast Cancer and Social Security Disability Benefits

Breast Cancer & SSD benefits

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and you may have noticed an abundance of pink in the supermarket aisles, promotions for races and other fundraising events this month and even special uniforms worn by professional athletes.

With the exception of cancer of the skin, breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed variety among women in America. Since about 13% of women suffer from this illness during their lifetime, along with about 2300 men per year, chances are you have been affected by it in some way.

If you have personally been diagnosed with breast cancer and it hinders your ability to work, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits. And it’s a condition that qualifies for Compassionate Allowance, which means your application could be expedited provided you have proper documentation and the disease has rendered you fully disabled.

The Social Security Administration will need official medical documentation of the size of your tumor(s), the stage your disease has progressed and copies of imaging results such as MRIs, biopsies, PET scans and mammograms.

If you can no longer work due to breast cancer or another disabling condition, contact the expert Social Security Disability Lawyers of Jan Dils, Attorneys at Law, for a free consultation. You can call toll-free 1.877.526.3457 or send us an e-mail for a prompt response.
