Alabama Disability Attorney HOMEWOOD Cancer

Alabama Disability Attorney HOMEWOOD Cancer

Alabama Disability Attorney HOMEWOOD: Cancer. The National Cancer Institute estimates that nearly 12 million Americans with a history of cancer were alive in January 2008; this number crosses all socio-economic lines and age categories and the diagnoses that you have cancer can lead to anxiety and depression.

Not only can cancer, in and of itself, be disabling at times, but the side effects of your treatment can be disabling as well, as can depression and anxiety. In applying for Social Security Disability benefits, it is important to list all the ways the cancer is effecting you.

In certain cases, the diagnoses in and of itself entitles the person applying for SSDI or SSI benefits (eg. Acute leukemia; esophageal cancer; gallbladder cancer; liver cancer; Mucosal Malignant Melanoma; Small Cell Lung Cancer; adrenal cancer with distant metastases or inoperable, unresectable or recurrent; bladder cancer with distant metastases or inoperable or unresectable; bone cancer with distant metastases or inoperable or unresectable; breast cancer with distant metastases or inoperable or unrescectable; etc).

In most other forms of cancer, you must be able to show that your condition, along with everything associated with your disease, prevents you from being able to perform the jobs you have done in the last 15 years and prevents you from engaging full time in other types of jobs after taking into account your age, education and past work experience.

Being diagnosed with cancer is devastating enough; you don't have to go through the process of obtaining you Social Security Disability benefits of SSI benefits alone.

If you or a loved one lives in Homewood, AL (or anywhere in Jefferson County*), you are suffering from the effects of cancer and you believe you are disabled as the result and are entitled to Social Security Disability or SSI benefits, you do not have to tackle the Social Security Administration alone. Please feel free to contact one of the experienced Alabama Disability Attorneys at Powell and Denny today.
