Social Security Disability Adds 35 Conditions to Compassionate Allowances

Tags: , , , , ,

Fighting for Social Security Disability benefits can be exhausting especially when fighting a horrible condition or disorder. Recently, the Social Security Administration (SSA) made it a bit easier for 35 conditions by adding these 35 conditions to its Compassionate Allowances program. By definition, these conditions are so severe that Social Security does not need to fully develop the applicant’s work history to make a decision. As a result, Social Security eliminated this part of the application process for people who have a condition on the list which results in a much faster turnaround time for Social Security Disability benefits.

The Compassionate Allowances program was introduced in 2008 to fast-track disability claims that obviously qualify for benefits based on a predetermined list of diseases and conditions. Many of these conditions, which now number 200, are types of cancers or adult brain disorders. Click here for a complete list of Compassionate Allowances conditions.

If you or a friend or family member is trying to get Social Security Disability benefits, you should not battle the SSA alone.

    Interesting post, thanks for sharing this! I just have a question, would you happen to know of a good company in Minnesota? I’ve been looking at this one http://www.meyerpuklich.com/social-security-disability.html but I don’t know if they’re any good. Thoughts?
