April is esophageal cancer awareness month. Even though esophageal cancer is considered to be a rare cancer it affects almost 4 in every 100,000 people. If you have esophageal cancer and can’t work any longer you can apply for Social Security disability benefits.
The money from disability benefits can help you pay for living expenses like housing, food, and utilities or for medical expenses that aren’t covered by insurance. If you have worked before but can’t work now and you expect that you won’t be able to work for at least a year you can apply for disability benefits.
