Understanding “Compassionate Allowances”
People who file for their Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) claims may possibly get their much needed benefits quickly if they are eligible for Compassionate Allowances (CAL) program.
The Social Security Administration implemented the CAL to give immediate assistance to SSDI applicants who are suffering from a serious or terminal medical condition. Disabled persons applying for SSDI only need to show their medical records supporting their serious illnesses or diseases. The SSA has initially identified 88 serious medical conditions that they believe to be eligible under the CAL program. The claims of eligible applicants will be processed by the SSA in as fast as three weeks.
Unfortunately, filing for your SSDI benefits can be difficult, mostly if you are unaware of the complicated process.
