Social Security Expands List of Compassionate Allowances Conditions

The Social Security Administration has added 13 new conditions involving the immune system and neurological disorders to its Compassionate Allowances program. This program speeds up disability decisions to make sure that Americans with the most serious disabilities receive their benefit decisions within days instead of months or years. The conditions include certain cancers, adult brain disorders, a number of rare genetic disorders of children, early-onset Alzheimer’s disease and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.

This information was recently added to Disability.gov. To learn more visit https://www.disability.gov/benefits/news_%26_events.
