Social Security Disability – New Cancer Listing Proposed

The Social Security Administration has published a Notice of Proposed Rule-Making (NPRM) in the Federal Register to alter its Listing of Impairments for cancer, which is currently referred to in the Listings as neoplastic diseases. An NPRM is just a proposal and the public is allowed to comment on the NPRM. Social Security must consider the comments before issuing a final regulation. We will update you when and if the listing of impairments is modified. Please note that persons with Cancer can still qualify for Social Security Benefits under the current listings of impairments. If you have questions about whether you qualify for Social Security Disability, please give us a call for a free consultation.
