Expediting Disability Claims: Compassionate Allowances

November 26, 2014

The Compassionate Allowance (CAL) program has been one of SSA’s most successful initiatives.  SSA has put together a list of diseases that are so severe that they are almost always approved within weeks of application with minimal objective evidence required for approval

SSA is always amending the list  and adding new diseases.  There are currently over 160 CAL conditions including:

Pancreatic cancer;

Small cell lung cancer;

Batten disease;

Angelmen syndrome; and

Adult Onset Huntington Disease.
