Articles on Cancer Disability Claims
Cancer is a disease in which abnormal cells develop and divide uncontrollably, infiltrating and destroying healthy body tissue. Specific types include breast, prostrate, colon skin and lung cancers, as well as leukemia and lymphoma.
The symptoms and treatments can take a terrible toll on those who suffer from the disease, leaving them unable to work in any capacity. A cancer diagnosis may even be terminal.
If the effects of your cancer and its treatment makes it impossible to earn a living, you may qualify for cancer disability benefits from the Social Security Administration, Veterans Administration, or through a group disability or individual disability benefits insurance policy. The cancer disability benefits lawyers at Marc Whitehead & Associates provide some useful tips for those seeking cancer disability benefits.
