A Guide to the Social Security Compassionate Allowances Initiative

Last updated 2 years ago

When it comes to social security disability, an individual is considered disabled if they are suffering from a medical condition so severe that it prevents them from working for at least one year or is likely to result in death.

This video provides an overview on the Social Security Compassionate Allowances Initiative. This initiative was established in order to expedite the approval of disability claims for individuals suffering from certain rare diseases and serious cancers. The Compassionate Allowances Initiative now includes over 100 different conditions and allows benefits to be approved within 14 days. Watch this clip to learn more.
