It’s hard enough to process a cancer diagnosis.
When cancer makes working impossible, it can add financial stress to your already-overwhelming reality. And your bills don’t have any sympathy for you, cancer or not.
How are you going to pay your normal expenses on top of any medical costs when you can’t work?
Social Security Disability benefits are meant for people in your situation. The monthly checks can be a lifesaver, saving you from financial downfall while you try to heal.
Winning these benefits, however, can be difficult. Most applicants are denied on their first try.
You probably wonder: do I even qualify?
With cancer, it can be complicated. Qualifying for disability benefits all depends on the type of cancer you have and its severity. On top of that, the Social Security system is confusing enough already.
It’s why you need an experienced disability attorney on your side. The lawyers at the Becker Law Office know the system, and we know how to give you the best chance to win.
If you have cancer and you’ve been denied Social Security Disability benefits in Madison, Wassau or anywhere in Wisconsin, contact us today to get your appeal started.
Social Security keeps a “compassionate allowances” list with conditions that qualify applicants for faster approval. If your cancer is on that list, you could receive benefits quicker than most.
Some cancers that qualify:
If your cancer isn’t on the list, you could still qualify. What you have to prove:
You’ll need evidence like medical reports, test results, hospital records, statements from friends and more. One mistake can lead to delays or denial of the benefits you need.
At the Becker Law Office, we’ll evaluate your case for free. Give us a call today.
A denial can feel like a slap in the face. Does Social Security know what you’ve been through?
Take it from us: this is no time to give up.
Social Security features a multi-step appeals process, and you can win benefits at any point during the process. We often see clients win benefits on appeal after an initial rejection.
Our lawyers know the system, the local Wisconsin Social Security offices and the local doctors. We know how to avoid common mistakes.
We’re proud to fight for you. You shouldn’t have to deal with complex legal problems at a time like this.
