Compassionate Allowances List

The Social Security Administration is utilizing sophisticated new information technology to identify claims with medical conditions that clearly meet the statutory standards for disability. This program, called Compassionate Allowances, fast-tracks disability cases to expedite favorable determinations for people with the most serious disabilities. Generally, these conditions involve neurological disorders, cancers and rare diseases.

Social Security launched the Compassionate Allowances program in 2008. At that time, there were approximately fifty diseases included in the program. This month fifty-two conditions have been added. They comprise certain cancers, adult brain disorders, a number of rare genetic disorders of children, early-onset Alzheimer’s disease, immune system conditions, and other disorders.Here is a compassionate allowances list of conditions.
