Cervical cancer causing physical and financial hardship?
Get Disability for Cervical Cancer.
Each year, more than 12,000 women in the United Stated will be diagnosed with cervical cancer. It is the second most common type of cancer in women worldwide.
There are three main types of treatment for cervical cancer: surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. Unfortunately, all of these options can produce debilitating side effects, including extreme fatigue, vomiting, pain and, even, neuropathy.
Many women undergoing treatment for cervical cancer can no longer work and bring home a paycheck. The loss of income often exacerbates their health crisis, causing feelings of helplessness and despair.
Fortunately, there is hope.
If you have been diagnosed with cervical cancer and have been (or are expected to be) out of work for at least a year, you may be eligible to receive Social Security Disability for Cervical Cancer. If approved, you will receive a monthly Disability check, and quite possibly, a lump sum of accrued back pay.
Obtaining benefits, however, is not easy ― especially for someone fighting a life-threatening disease. You can’t just call the Social Security Administration, tell them you have been diagnosed with cervical cancer and start receiving monthly payments.
The Disability process is time-consuming and tedious, requiring extensive information about your medical condition, work history and daily activities. Inadequate information, incomplete forms and missed deadlines can result in a denied Disability claim.
That is why so many people rely on McDonald Law Firm. Our team of attorneys, case managers and intake specialists work together to build a powerful, persuasive case on your behalf. We handle virtually everything, including filling out forms and gathering medical information.
If for some reason your claim gets denied, we will appeal your case and, if necessary, represent you at a Disability hearing before an Administrative Law Judge. We have a proven track record of success and go the distance for our clients.
How does the Social Security Administration determine who qualifies for Disability for Cervical Cancer?
As mentioned, being diagnosed with cervical cancer doesn’t guarantee a stamp of approval. The Social Security Administration has certain criteria that must be met before they will approve a claim for Disability for Cervical Cancer. To get approved during the initial application stage, you must prove, through solid medical evidence, that you meet one of the following conditions:
- The cancer must extend to the pelvic wall, lower portion of the vagina, or to adjacent or distant organs.
- The cancer must be persistent or recurring despite treatment.
- The cancer has metastasized to or beyond regional lymph nodes.
Don’t meet the SSA’s criteria for Cervical Cancer Disability? Don’t worry.
Don’t get discouraged if you don’t meet the SSA’s criteria. If you can prove that your condition or treatment prevents you from working your past job and that you can’t transition into any other job, you can still qualify for Disability for Cervical Cancer.
Proving you can’t work at all can be technical and tricky. The Social Security Administration will want to review all of your records, treatments and doctor’s statements to assess your limitations and ability to work.
Sound overwhelming? It doesn’t have to be. The Disability team at McDonald Law Firm know what the SSA wants and knows how to get the necessary information to substantiate your claim.
