Disability for Cancer

Having a diagnosis of cancer and going through chemotherapy and/or radiation doesn't guarantee you'll be approved for Social Security disability benefits by any means. Social Security will look at the type of cancer, whether the cancer has spread, your prognosis, and whether your inability to work is likely to last a year. Social Security also considers what side effects the treatment has on your functioning. Certain cancers, on the other hand, almost guarantee an expedited approval of benefits becase of their poor prognosis.
