I had 5 chemotherapies between February and August this year (cancer stage 4b). The end-of-treatment examinations show good results and my return-to-work date is scheduled on December 1, 2014. I will go back to my previous job.
I am currently on long-term disability with my insurance company who asked me to apply for SS Disability. I know that ss disability approval usually takes a few months, I may return to work before my applicatin is approved.
My questions are:
1. Should I apply for ss disability as my insurance company asked me to do at this moment?
2. If I am approved to get ss disability, can I go back to my previous job and employer?
3. is it to my benefit to be on ss disability program now or should I wait in case there is reoccurance of cancer later?
