Cherry Hill Social Security Lawyers: Compassionate Allowances
The Social Security Administration (SSA) recognizes that some disabilities are obviously going to prevent someone from working so they expedite the disability claims process. The SSA targets a preset list of severe medical diseases and conditions for this expedited remedy known as a Compassionate Allowance. Cherry Hill Social Security lawyers at the Law Offices of Eric A. Shore know what medical conditions qualify for Compassionate Allowance and the proper way to obtain Compassionate Allowance approval.
Social Security Disability Compassionate Allowance Process
There is no special request process for a Social Security Disability Compassionate Allowance. Medical conditions are flagged through a computer analysis that examines each disorder type to see if it matches a disorder on the Compassionate Allowance list. It is helpful to have a skilled Social Security disability lawyer assist the claimant in proving they have a qualifying Compassionate Allowance condition.
Most disability claims can take months or even a year before a decision is rendered. Due to the nature of a Compassionate Allowance, claimants get a decision within weeks from when the claim is made and benefits are paid from the date of eligibility. This is a much faster turnaround time as eligibility for all Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) claims is five months.
Compassionate Allowance Medical Conditions
The pre-approved SSA Compassionate Allowance list is created through outreach hearings, input from Social Security and Disability Determination Service forums, the National Institutes of Health and other sources. Some of the approved medical conditions include many forms of cancer such as gallbladder cancer and pancreatic cancer. Mitral valve atresia, ALS/Parkinsonism Dementia Complex, and Infantile Tay Sachs Disease are several other approved conditions.
Compassionate Allowance disorders need proper medical reports to support the claim. These reports should include medical tests, acknowledged symptoms and diagnosis methods that match the SSA standards.
