COMPASSIONATE ALLOWANCES

Sometimes, you really don’t need an attorney for Social Security and SSI benefits. Social Security has a specific program called “compassionate allowances.” They identify certain diseases and medical conditions which may be automatically approved. Generally, these are certain types of cancer, brain disorders, and rare disorders affecting children. The disorders on the list are updated. The public can even submit impairments to be considered.
