Cancer Disability and SSD Eligibility
Don’t be confused by the many cancer and SSDI and SSI myths you may hear. Here are some of the vital aspects of SSDI and SSI eligibility for cancer victims.
Charlotte, NC Social Security Disability:
No matter what your illness or injury, the SSD definition of “disability” is key. SSD policy states that, to be eligible, you must be disabled and unable to engage in any substantial gainful activity (SGA). Even if your current job pays far less than your former one, if you are still working, you are ineligible for benefits.
Eligibility for veterans:
Often, veterans who receive veterans disability benefits qualify for SSD benefits as well.
For many patients whose cancer has been cured or gone into remission, we have still succeeded in attaining SSDI or SSI benefits because the residual effects of the radiation and chemotherapy treatments can still render the patients disabled.
