The Benefits You Need in a Tough Time

Processing a cancer diagnosis can be the most difficult you’ve ever done.

Life already feels unfair. Then, your cancer forces you out of work. Your bills still come, though.

It’s really unfair when you’re saddled with financial stress on top of health worries.

Social Security Disability benefits are meant for people in your situation. The monthly checks prevent you from money struggles while you focus on feeling your best.

In a harsh twist, winning these benefits is hard. Most applicants are denied on their first try.

With cancer, many factors can go into a decision: the type of cancer you have, how it affects your daily life and the evidence you present to support your case.

We know it can be intimidating. It’s why you need someone like Baynetta Jordan on your side.

She’s proud to represent her neighbors in Lubbock and all over West Texas. She’ll fight for you—and give you the best chance at winning benefits.

Common Types of Cancer That Qualify for Disability

While applying for disability can be a complex process, Social Security does recognize how serious some forms of cancer are and speeds up the process for those affected.

The SSA keeps a “compassionate allowance” list which details the conditions that qualify applicants for quick approval.

Cancers included on this list, among others:

  • Brain cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Carcinoma
  • Kidney cancer
  • Leukemia
  • Liver cancer
  • Lung cancer
  • Lymphoma
  • Melanoma
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Thyroid cancer

Even if your cancer isn’t listed above, don’t worry. You can still qualify. You’ll just have to prove these three things:

  • Your cancer makes working impossible.
  • You’re unable to switch to another line of work.
  • Your health will force you out of work for at least a year.

To win, you’ll need detailed evidence. Doctor’s reports, hospital records, testimonials and more.

Baynetta Jordan can make sure your case has every facet you need. She’ll even evaluate your case for free.

If You’ve Been Denied, Don’t Give Up

Getting a denial, especially after what you’ve been through already, can feel cruel.

It’s understandable to feel like giving up and trying to make the best of it.

Don’t fall into that trap.

Social Security features a multi-step appeals process, in which you can win benefits at any juncture. Your likeliest outcome is winning at a hearing with an administrative law judge (ALJ).

You don’t have to go through this ordeal alone.

Baynetta Jordan knows the system and knows how to win cases. Hiring a representative for your hearing gives you the best chance of winning benefits—the government’s own statistics say so.

Don’t take a chance when it comes to your wellbeing.
