Am I entitled to benefits if I have cancer?

by Sara
(New Jersey)

I have received a packet from NY state that says I may be eligible for a 20 week extension. I am undergoing cancer treatment. Am I still eligible?

Hi Sara,

Would you still be looking for work and most importantly, medically able and available to work while undergoing treatment for cancer?

That is the question you must know the answer to as it is just one of a few conditional eligibility requirements to collect regular and extension benefits.
