Do You have a Malignant Neoplastic Disease?

If you have one of these diseases, then you may qualify for social security disability insurance. According to the Social Security Administration, the government will evaluate the origin of your malignancy and the extent of involvement that it creates when they determine whether or not you qualify for benefits. They will also want to look into the duration and frequency of any antineoplastic therapies that you have completed. The Administration considers chemotherapy, surgery, hormones, immunotherapy, bone marrow transplant, stem cell transplant, or another treatment to be an antineoplastic therapy that could qualify you for benefits if it causes debilitation.

If you are trying to obtain disability benefits for a malignant neoplastic disease, you will want to produce some medical evidence that proves that you have the illness. Copy all operative notes, pathology reports, and hospitals records in order to help prove that you truly are in need of financial assistance due to your illness. If your tumor is not metastasized beyond the lymph nodes, then you are going to have to include a longitudinal record that records three months after therapy to determine whether or not treatments will bolster your ability to earn money again.

The range of malignancies that are recognized by the SSA is wide, but detailed. The SSA generally will only grant benefits to someone who has a persisting malignancy even after treatment. If you can prove that your disease has been enabling for up to 12 months, then you have a better chance of qualifying. If you remain in remission for three years after a disease and are doing well, then your disability benefits may be discontinued.
