For information about each of the following subjects, see the documents in “To Learn More.”

Depending on your particular circumstances, you may be entitled to government benefits such as:

  • An income due to disability (Social Security Disability Insurance) or because your income is low,(Supplemental Security Income)
  • Health insurance (through Medicare or Medicaid or the VA) or
  • Food assistance (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly Food Stamps).

There are no government benefits which distinguish between colorectal cancer and other health conditions or whether your health condition is just diagnosed or is a recurrence.

It is worth paying particular attention to an income from Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). If you do not currently qualify, you may be able to take steps to qualify.
