Get the Benefits You Deserve in a Trying Time
A cancer diagnosis can be traumatic enough in its own right.
So many parts of your life are affected, even outside of your health. The normal activities you enjoy, the way of life you’ve become accustomed to—it all changes.
Many common types of cancer can force you out of work, too. But your bills don’t have any sympathy. They arrive in the mailbox all the same.
The last thing you need is financial stress stacked on top of your health worries.
Social Security Disability benefits are meant for people in your position. The monthly checks provide the financial security you need in a tough time.
Unfortunately, these benefits can be hard to win. Most applicants are denied on their first try.
It’s why you need someone like The Morgan Law Firm on your side.
Our experienced attorneys know the system and we know how to give you the best chance to win you the benefits you deserve.
If you’re in South Bend or anywhere in Michiana, call us to start reclaiming your life today.
Common Types of Cancer that Qualify for Benefits in IN
Winning benefits depends on the kind of cancer you have and its severity.
Some cancers we often see qualify:
- Brain cancer
- Breast cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Liver cancer
- Lung cancer
- Pancreatic cancer
- Prostate cancer
- Thyroid cancer
Even if your cancer isn’t on this list, you could still qualify. What you’ll have to prove:
- Your cancer makes working impossible.
- You can’t switch to another line of work.
- Your health will force you out of work for at least a year or more.
If your cancer is more severe, you could be approved quickly. Social Security keeps a “compassionate allowances” list , which details the conditions it considers serious enough to warrant expedited benefits.
No matter how bad your cancer is, it’s still cancer. We know you’re going through a tough time. We want to help.
Our compassionate attorneys can answer any questions you have. We’ll even evaluate your case at no cost to you.
Don’t Give Up after a Denial
A denial can feel like a betrayal.
You’re the one with cancer. Don’t they know you’re struggling?
With all you’re going through, it’s not fair. We know.
This isn’t the end, though.
Social Security has a multi-step appeals process, with chances to win your benefits at each juncture. Your best shot comes at a hearing with an administrative law judge (ALJ), which is the only time you’ll plead your case in person.
Don’t go it alone. In fact, the government’s own statistics show that you’re three times as likely to win benefits at an appeals hearing if you hire representation.
Let us do the legal legwork. You focus on feeling your best.
At The Morgan Law Firm, we’re proud to help our neighbors in South Bend and across Michiana get the benefits they need.
Social Security Disability is all we do.
