If you are not receiving disability income 

If your colorectal condition or ongoing FOLFOX treatment keep you from working, you may be entitled to an income from Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and/or Supplemental Security Insurance (SSI) or another government program. 

If your cancer has metastasized (spread to other organs or elsewhere in the body), you may be entitled to what is referred to as a fast track determination that you are unable to work. Otherwise, you will be subject to an extensive, time consuming, review. Only one third of the people who apply for SSDI are approved for benefits. We provide practical information about helping you apply that increase the chances you will be approved. For instance, we recommend that you apply in person, not online to learn more, click here.
