Does Social Security Disability cover cancer?

A cancer diagnosis can be life-altering. You may unable to work depending on the severity of your condition. If you were employed full-time leading up to your diagnosis, then the best-case scenario is that your employer has been making Social Security deductions from your paycheck all of these years. If that's the case, then most likely you've paid into the system enough to qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI).

Why do Social Security Disability applications get denied?

The Social Security Administration (SSA) receives countless applications for disability benefits on an annual basis. The federal agency denies at least 50% of the ones that they receive. There are varied reasons as to why these denials occur.

How often the Social Security Administration reviews your file

If you receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), then it's not abnormal for you to be asked to submit for a Continuing Disability Review (CDR) on occasion. What you may not be aware of is what the Social Security Administration (SSA) is looking for when they perform this review and how often they tend to ask you to submit to one of these.

How debilitating is schizophrenia?

If there's such a thing as a minor mental health disorder then schizophrenia is not one of them. This condition is included in publications such as the Social Security Administration's (SSA) Listing of Impairments largely because it's a chronic and serious mental disorder. Individuals who suffer from schizophrenia often appear to others as if they live in their own world. This condition can adversely impact an individual's feelings, behaviors and reasoning abilities.
