In 2015, more than a million people will be diagnosed with cancer. This alarming statistic affects people and families all over the world. On June 7, we join Social Security to observe National Cancer Survivors Day. In support of this day, Social Security encourages checkups, early detection and awareness, while honoring the survivors who have gone through this battle and defeated the disease.
Social Security offers services to patients suffering from this disease through its disability program and Compassionate Allowances program. Compassionate Allowances are cases with medical conditions so severe they obviously meet Social Security’s disability standards, allowing quick processing of cases with minimal medical information.
For more information about Compassionate Allowances, or to view the conditions currently listed, visit www.socialsecurity.gov/compassionate allowances. If you think you qualify for disability benefits based on a Compassionate Allowances condition, please ask us about it. We can help you be sure your claim gets the attention it needs to be granted a compassionate allowance. We have years of experience working with doctors to get just the right information to assure these claims go through smoothly at initial application.
