Does a Neoplastic Cancer Qualify You for Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits?
Social Security impairment listing 13.00 addresses malignant neoplastic diseases. Social Security uses these listings to evaluate all malignant neoplasms except certain neoplasms associated with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. Social Security uses the criteria in Listing 14.08E to evaluate carcinoma of the cervix, Kaposi’s sarcoma, lymphoma, and squamous cell carcinoma of the anal canal and anal margin if you also have HIV infection.
Having your illness in the Social Security impairment lists does not guarantee that you will get SSDI benefits, but such a listing will help your Social Security attorney assemble the right evidence to demonstrate your disability. Contact attorney Nick Ortiz for a free evaluation of your case.
