Do You Have A Compassionate Allowance Condition?

The Social Security Administration announced earlier this year that it has added 25 conditions to its Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) Compassionate Allowances list.

People who qualify for SSDI may also get access to Medicare. Ordinarily, the process can take a while, especially if appeals are involved, but through the Compassionate Allowances list, the process is expedited. On average, people who go through the program are able to get benefit decisions in as little as 20 days.

So far, about 200,000 Americans have received benefits through the Compassionate Allowances program. Below is a list of conditions that were newly added:

  • Angiosarcoma
  • Atypical Teratoid/Rhabdoid Tumor
  • Chronic Idiopathic Intestinal Pseudo Obstruction
  • Coffin-Lowry Syndrome
  • Esthesioneuroblastoma
  • Giant Axonal Neuropathy
  • Hoyeaal-Hreidarsson Syndrome
  • Intracranial Hemangiopericytoma
  • Joubert Syndrome
  • Leptomeningeal Carcinomatosis
  • Liposarcoma-metastatic or recurrent
  • Malignant Ectomesenchymoma
  • Malignant Renal Rhabdoid Tumor
  • Marshall-Smith Syndrome
  • Oligodendroglioma Brain Tumor – Grade III
  • Pallister-Killian Syndrome
  • Progressive Bulbar Palsy
  • Prostate Cancer – Hormone Refractory Disease – or with visceral metastases
  • Revesz Syndrome
  • Seckel Syndrome
  • Sjogren-Larsson Syndrome
  • Small Cell Cancer of the Thymus
  • Soft Tissue Sarcoma with distant metastases or recurren
  • X-Linked Lymphoproliferative Disease
  • X-Linked Myotubular Myopathy

    I didn't think there was a caring professional considerate attorney firm on the planet, but Troutman & Troutman proved me wrong. From the receptionist to the legal assistance to the attorney and more they were exceptional people.

    - Robert S.

    They did a fantastic job getting everything gathered up and getting the trial done as quickly as possible. Anytime I had a question they were patient and help me understand what was going on. Especially Christy and Charlie were great.

    - Michael M.

    Steve Troutman was able to get my short-term and long-term disability for me. Then Erin another lawyer for their firm got my Social security disability for me. Great people.

    - Billy S.

    Mr. Troutman walked me through the entire process. Heather was available each time I called, answered all my crazy questions, and helped me fill out forms along the way. I was never treated like I was wasting time.

    Erin and Keith were fabulous! They were compassionate, helpful, and very responsive! They made the process very smooth and painless every step of the way.
