What Conditions Are Eligible For Expedited Disability Benefits Claims Processing?

How Does Social Security Determine If You Are Disabled?

Persons, who suffer from certain conditions, like certain types of cancers, or certain degenerative conditions, may be eligible for quicker processing of their claims. That’s because these conditions are quickly progressing conditions, and a delay in claims processing could be devastating for the victim.

The Social Security Administration has developed a Compassionate Allowances Initiative program that is meant to cover those conditions that are so serious that the condition automatically meets disability criteria. A number of conditions are listed under the Compassionate Allowances program. If you suffer from these conditions, your claim may be approved very quickly.

These conditions include adult non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, certain types of cancers, myocardial fibrosis, and other conditions. The cancers that Compassionate Allowances covers include kidney cancer, head and neck cancers, bladder cancer, esophagus cancer, breast and adrenal cancer.

If you suffer from conditions that are listed in the Compassionate Allowances Initiative program, you will have to apply under the same procedure to apply for benefits, as for any other condition. However, claimants who suffer from these conditions will have their claims expedited by the Social Security Administration.

To file for disability benefits for any of the above-mentioned conditions, speak to a Los Angeles Social Security disability benefits lawyer. To understand if your condition is covered under the Compassionate Allowances program, schedule a consultation with a Los Angeles Social Security disability benefits lawyer.
