Because every cancer is different, Social Security has come up with guidelines for each type of the common cancers to determine if they qualify for Social Security Disability benefits. The following is the guidelines Social Security has put out regarding skeletal system sarcoma.

13.11 Skeletal system — sarcoma.

  1. Inoperable or unresectable.

OR

  1. Recurrent cancer (except local recurrence) after initial anticancer therapy.

OR

  1. With distant metastases.

OR

  1. All other cancer originating in bone with multimodal anticancer therapy (see 13.00E3c). Consider under a disability for 12 months from the date of diagnosis. Thereafter, evaluate any residual impairment(s) under the criteria for the affected body system.
