It’s tough enough grappling with the news that you have cancer. Besides the loss of your physical health, you shouldn’t have to worry about damage to your financial well-being, too.
You’d much rather be able to work through the treatment. But it’s too hard. You can’t work. Your income stops. Your bills pile up. You feel helpless.
But there is help. Monthly checks from Social Security Disability (SSD) can help you cover your basic needs—so you can focus on beating your cancer.
Still, most people are denied when they first apply for benefits, even with cancer.
Get support through this difficult time. Horenstein, Nicholson & Blumenthal has helped thousands of people in Ohio win disability benefits for more than 40 years.
When you’re not feeling well and you’re trying to deal with a massive government program like Social Security Disability, an HNB lawyer can take the pressure off you.

Winning Social Security Disability benefits can take months—and sometimes more than a year. But Social Security recognizes that certain forms of cancer are highly aggressive—and receiving disability benefits is urgent.
The Social Security Administration grants special consideration for severe cancers, which it put on a list qualifying for “compassionate allowances.”
A compassionate allowance can get you immediate benefits. The attorneys at HNB Law know how to request this faster decision.
But even without a fast-track allowance, cancer can qualify you for benefits through a standard application.
You could be awarded benefits with any of these types of cancer and more:
