Social Security Expands Compassionate Allowance Conditions

Social Security Administration Commissioner, Michael Astrue, has added 13 disabilities to the list of medical conditions which qualify for a “fast track” administrative review. The result is that an individual applying for Social Security Disability, suffering with any of these conditions, will have the application reviewed expeditiously by Social Security personnel. The intent is to speed up the tremendous backlog of applications for Social Security, which are growing exponentially.

The list has been expanded to including the following conditions: malignant multiple sclerosis; lowe syndrome; paraneoplastic pemphigus; multicentric Castleman disease; pulmonary kaposi sarcoma; primary central nervous system lymphoma; primary effusion lymphoma; angleman syndrome; lewy body dementia; corticobasal degeneration; multiple system atrophy; progressive supranuclear palsy;ALS/Parkinsonian dementia complex.
