Get the Benefits You Deserve

Finding out you have cancer can send you reeling.

What you didn’t expect? Learning how much of a ripple effect it can have on your entire life. Your job, your family, your daily routine—they’re all thrown into flux.

Your condition is bad enough that working is impossible. Your bills keep coming, though. Without a steady income, how are you supposed to pay?

It feels grossly unfair that you’re dealing with financial stress while you try to cope with your cancer.

Social Security Disability benefits are meant for people like you. When you can’t work, the monthly checks provide a financial lifeline while you focus on your health—the most important thing.

Sadly, it can be difficult to win these benefits. Many are denied on their initial application.

That’s why you need an experienced disability representative on your side.

At Hanley Disability, our staff knows the ins and outs of the system. We take pride in helping our neighbors in Indiana get the benefits they need.

Once you’re denied benefits, the clock starts ticking. Don’t wait too long. You might miss the deadline to appeal.

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
  • Carcinoma
  • Leukemia
  • Liver cancer
  • Lung cancer
  • Lymphoma
  • Melanoma
  • 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.

We know this can be overwhelming. We’re here to help.

If you’re in Indianapolis, Danville, or anywhere in Indiana, we can answer any questions you have, and we’ll even evaluate your case at no cost to you.

What If I’ve Been Denied?

Getting a rejection from Social Security can sting. It feels like a slap in the fact after what you’ve gone through.

You can’t give up now, though.

Social Security offers a multi-step appeals process, with chances to win your benefits at each juncture. Your best opportunity comes at a hearing with an administrative law judge (ALJ), where you can plead your case in person.

And you don’t have to go through this alone.

In fact, the government’s own statistics say you’re three times a likely to win benefits at an appeals hearing if you hire representation. So don’t take a chance on your future.
