Cancer Diagnosis May Throw Your Financial World Upside Down
If you have been diagnosed with breast cancer, one of your first worries might be where you should get your medical treatment and will you be able to continue working during treatment.
If your breast cancer prevents you from working, you may be entitled to receive long term disability benefits if you’ve purchased a disability plan from a private insurer or have coverage through an employer.
You should talk to your human resources department and determine whether or not you have short term disability and long term disability insurance benefits. Most short term disability policies will cover 13 to 26 weeks of disability.
Let’s face it, the initial weeks of chemotherapy are going to be aggressive and you are going to have difficult working. Hopefully, you’ve purchased short and long term disability benefits that will protect you and your family.
