Common Types of Cancer That Qualify for Disability
Winning your claim depends on the type of cancer you have and its severity.
Some types of cancer we see qualify
- Brain cancer
- Breast cancer
- Liver cancer
- Lung cancer
- Pancreatic cancer
- Prostate cancer
- Thyroid cancer
If your cancer isn’t included above, you could still qualify. Here’s what you’ll have to prove:
- Your cancer forces you out of work.
- You cannot switch to a different line of work.
- You won’t be able to work for at least a year.
If your case is severe, you could get approved quickly. Social Security maintains a list of what it calls “compassionate allowances,” which are conditions harsh enough to warrant expedited benefits.
