Compassionate Allowances

When the Social Security Administration looks at disability applications, they try to determine the length and severity of an applicant’s injury or illness. In some cases, the most severe illnesses can receive a compassionate allowance. With these, the Social Security Administration, or SSA, will approve your disability coverage quickly so that you can get the help that you deserve.

Although there is a list of disorders that typically come with a compassionate allowance, not at all disabilities are this easy to prove. In many cases, you must go through a long application process to get the coverage that you need. To help prove your disability, contact an Indiana long-term disability lawyer from the Hankey Law Office today at (800) 520-3633.

The Importance of Compassionate Allowances

For people with serious disorders, medical bills can quickly build up as you try to manage your pain and suffering. To help prevent this, the SSA realizes that some diseases often deserve immediate disability coverage. Thus, almost as soon as you receive your diagnosis, you can be approved for disability benefits to help you with your suffering.

Disorders on the List of Compassionate Allowances

The SSA has compiled a short list of disorders that almost always earn immediate disability coverage. This list includes:

  • Acute leukemia
  • Bone cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Mesothelioma
  • Lesch-Nyhan Syndrome
  • Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease
