Qualifying for Compassionate Allowance for Breast Cancer in Boston

Receiving a diagnosis of breast cancer can be frightening. You have many questions that rush through your mind, such as what is your prognosis, how advanced is the cancer, and how will treatment impact your body? One of the biggest concerns of breast cancer patients is how they will pay for treatments and continue to work while they are sick.

To help with this, the Social Security Administration (SSA) provides disability benefits. Many times, the process to receive these benefits can take months or years. To expedite the process for people with advanced breast cancer, and other conditions, the SSA developed a plan called “Compassionate Allowances.” If you qualify, your application will be expedited, giving you the money you need so that you can focus on healing instead of stressing your body trying to continue to work.

Types of Breast Cancer That Qualify for Boston SSDI Compassionate Allowance

There are many different types of breast cancer that qualify you for automatic benefits through the compassionate allowances program. These cancers include:

  • Metastatic breast carcinoma or cancer
  • Metastatic ductal carcinoma or cancer
  • Metastatic lobular carcinoma or cancer
  • Stage IV breast carcinoma, ductal carcinoma of the breast, or lobular carcinoma of the breast
  • Recurrent breast cancer
  • Inflammatory breast cancer
     

If you have been diagnosed with any of these types of breast cancer, you may qualify for a compassionate allowance as long as the cancer is inoperable, not fully removable by surgery, or if it spreads to organs or lymph nodes away from the breast.

Applying for Compassionate Allowances for Breast Cancer in Boston
