Did you know that you can be paid disability benefits when your cancer is in remission?
Insurance companies are often quick to deny a claimant who is now in remission despite suffering from debilitating symptoms. While being in “remission” means that you have little to no cancer in your body, many cancer treatments can cause other long-term symptoms, including:
- Cognitive difficulties
- Nerve damage
- Hearing problems
- Heart problems
- Lung problems
In most group disability insurance policies, whether you are disabled depends on your ability to work. More specifically, the policy defines “disabled” and pays benefits if you meet that definition.
Therefore, whether benefits are paid depends on your restrictions and limitations. Your restrictions and limitations are not necessarily dependent upon the diagnosis, i.e. cancer, but instead to the symptoms from which you suffer.
If you suffered from cancer and underwent treatment that has resulted in lasting symptoms, you may be able to qualify for disability benefits. Contact one of our experienced disability insurance attorneys to discuss your case and see how we can help.
