The simple answer is Yes. A person can certainly qualify to receive Long Term Disability benefits because of having cancer. However, it is not the fact that he/she has cancer …that qualifies him/her for benefits. In order to qualify for Long Term Disability benefits, a person must satisfy the requirements set forth by their Group or individual policy - which can be found by reviewing the definition of total disability along with the guidelines for Residual disability. Without getting too far into detail, the requirement to receive Disability benefits from a group or individually owned policy will be worded something like: To be considered totally disabled you must be unable to perform the material and substantial duties of your occupation (or "any" occupation, depending on your contract). Thus explaining that it is not necessarily Cancer that enables a person to receive Long Term Disability benefits, but rather the inability to perform his/her occupational duties that can be caused by cancer. In order to qualify for Residual benefits (benefits for partial disability), the debilitating injury or illness must cause a loss of income greater than 15-25%, depending on the policy.
A long-term disability is an illness or accident that impairs you from working and earning an income for a period of 3 months or longer. Lon-term disability insurance will pay… a monthly benefit in case you can't work for three months or longer. Benefit period is usually 2 years, 5 years, or to retirement age (age 65, 67). The waiting or elimination period is generally 90 days or 180 days, after which benefits start.
Individual long-term disability premiums are not tax deductible, but paid with after-tax money; therefore the benefit will not be taxable. The only disability insurance premi…ums that are tax deductible are the business expense and overhead DI (BOE/DOE) and Buy-Sell DI, as well as Key-Person DI.

It depends upon the plan that your employer maintains. Frequently, benefits are on a sliding scale, such as 75% for the first month, 60% for the next month, and 40% thereafter… until the benefit expires. The percentages are based upon your earnings at the time of disability, and may be funded via an insurance policy that the employer has taken out, or self-funded by the employer itself.
