Cancer And Social Security Disability

Being diagnosed with any type of cancer is a devastating blow for anyone. Depending on the type and stage of the cancer, it can also severely impair your ability to work. Many cancer victims are able to apply for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, and some are able to have their claims expedited if their type of cancer falls under "listed impairments" or the Compassionate Allowance listings.

The SSD claims process can be very complex. When you are dealing with cancer, it is important that you do everything you can to obtain benefits in the most expedient manner possible. At the Law Offices of Katherine L. Niven & Associates, PC, we dedicate our entire practice to helping the injured and disabled obtain the benefits and compensation they need.
