Compassionate Allowances In Social Security Disability Claims

The compassionate allowance program was instituted so that the Social Security Administration could target specific medical conditions for approval of disability benefits. The list continues to grow and now includes conditions such as:

  • Early onset Alzheimer’s disease;
  • Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis;
  • Mixed dementia;
  • Small cell lung cancer;

If your claim is based on one of the numerous medical conditions listed on the compassionate allowance list it is possible that your claim may be approved much faster than claims based on other types of medical conditions.

If you have questions about your Social Security claim, please feel free to contact our office.
