SSA Adds 35 New Conditions to their Compassionate Allowances

Aug 22, 2014 | Social Security Disability

Social Security announced on December 6, 2012 the agency has added 35 new conditions to its list of Compassionate Allowances. Compassionate Allowance are medical conditions and diseases which are very serious. Once Social Security identifies the claim as a Compassionate Allowance, staff can make the decision much more quickly-in a few weeks rather than in several months.


The new 35 conditions which include Adult Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, Malignant Germ Cell Tumor and Roberts Syndrome, brings the total to 200 Compassionate Allowance conditions. Due to the seriousness of these conditions, SSA staff does not need to develop a claimant’s educational or work history for a compassionate allowance claim.
