Babs Posted November 24, 2020 Share Posted November 24, 2020 Well, I applied for Social Security Disability Insurance and was fully prepared to be denied and I was approved!! I can’t believe it. I have heard horror stories of people having to appeal multiple times and obtain an Attorney. I applied about 1 month ago and just received my email this morning. It says I became disabled in July 2019 which is when I was diagnosed originally. Sounds like I will get a check next month and if I’m reading it correctly back pay to January 2020? I’m just excited I will get almost the same as my monthly amount would be if I we’re at full retirement age. I’m currently 62. This will certainly help ease my mind of withdrawing so much each month from savings. I highly recommend that everyone apply if you are currently diagnosed with advanced Lung Cancer. I was originally diagnosed stage III and am now stage IV due to a local recurrence. Thanks to all for your stories regarding this. It helped to encourage me to apply.
