SSDI for Cancer

I think it's appalling you make cancer patients be out of work for 12 months or they can't collect SS Disability especially when you paid in all your damn life and never asked for help!! Being out for a period of time can devastate a family. Just one month can devastate a family. My husband has been out since Oct. 2016. He MIGHT be able to return in April some time. How can YOU justify he doesn't deserve SSDI when HE worked his whole life and paid in for something that is suppose to help him. Change the rule. It's ridiculous!!

Hi there,
I'm sorry to hear about that! He may still be eligible for benefits for the time that he was out of work due to his illness.
