Additions to the Compassionate Allowance List

September 26, 2018

Social Security has added the following new medical conditions to its Compassionate Allowance list: 
  • Fibrolamellar Cancer
  • Megacystis Microcolon Intestinal Hypoperistalsis Syndrome
  • Megalencephaly-Capillary Malformation Syndrome
  • Superficial Siderosis of the Central Nervous System
  • Tetrasomy 18p
These are extremely rare disorders.  I have only represented individuals with one disorder that shows up on the Compassionate Allowance list.  That disorder is ALS, also knows as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
One suspicious SSA poster observed that Social Security seems to adds to the compassionate allowance list when they’ve got a Congressional hearing coming up and they want to show how *compassionate* they are, however,  it doesn’t seem that there are any upcoming  Congressional hearings.
