Why should I apply for Social Security disability if my condition is fatal?

As someone with a terminal illness, you face many important decisions that will impact the rest of your life and your family’s future. As you continue to get treatment at the MD Cancer Center in Sugar Land or palliative care at the Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas, it is important that you also consider whether you qualify for Social Security disability benefits.

Why This Matters Now

If your condition is terminal, you are unable to work, and you qualify for Social Security disability benefits, it is important to protect your potential recovery of these benefits. If you don’t, you could:

  • Have difficulty paying your bills for the rest of your life
  • Require your family members to work harder to make up for your lost income
  • Place a lasting financial burden on your family if assets and savings have to be used to make up for your lost income

These consequences are not inevitable, however. Instead of adding financial pressure to what is already a very difficult time for your family, you can apply for the benefits that you’ve worked hard to earn.
