People with cancer can be eligible for Social Security Disability.

Social Security will want to see the latest medical records from your treatments. It is also important to have information from your doctor addressing how your treatments will affect your daily activities, how long and what treatments will be needed, and your prognosis.

In Social Security you must be disabled for 12 months or expect to be disabled that long. Your doctor will have to provide an assessment for Social Security whether you will be disabled for more than 12 months.

Of course, there are many other things going on when you  have a disease such as cancer. Part of my job is to meet with your doctor and ask for the information that Social Security needs to find you disabled. 

Please feel free to call me, Attorney Dirk May, at 309-827-4371.
