Cancer in itself is not often disabling for long periods of time, which means it often will not meet the Social Security Administration's standard for "disability." More often, cancer survivors who receive Social Security benefits do so because of the side effects of the treatments.

Cancer Treatments

Unfortunately, many of the treatments for breast cancer are quite aggressive. The chemotherapy, surgery, radiation therapy and other attempted solutions often bring side effects that are more debilitating than the cancer itself.

Many people suffering from the mental impairments wonder: Am I eligible for social security benefits? It is important to remember that your ailments do not have to be physical impairments for you to be eligible. If we can establish that your injury prevents you from earning an income over $1,000 per month and that this problem should last more than a year, you should be eligible for benefits.

Our attorneys will walk you through the entire Social Security process, helping make sure you get the benefits you need.
