Social Security Adds 12 New Compassionate Allowance Conditions

 Posted on August 31, 2022 in Social Security Disability

On August 15, 2022, the Social Security Administration SSA added 12 new Compassionate Allowance (CAL) conditions. The conditions are:

  • Angioimmunoblastic T-cell Lymphoma,
  • Blastic Plasmacytoid Dendritic Cell Neoplasm,
  • Gerstmann-Straussler-Scheinker Disease,
  • Microvillus Inclusion Disease – Child,
  • Mowat-Wilson Syndrome,
  • Myelodysplastic Syndrome with Excess Blasts,
  • NUT Carcinoma,
  • Pfeiffer Syndrome – Types II and III,
  • Pontocerebellar Hypoplasia,
  • Posterior Cortical Atrophy,
  • Renal Amyloidosis – AL Type,
  • Sarcomatoid Mesothelioma.

Per the SSA press release, “The Compassionate Allowances program quickly identifies claims where the applicant’s condition or disease clearly meets Social Security’s statutory standard for disability. Due to the severe nature of many of these conditions, these claims are often allowed based on medical confirmation of the diagnosis alone. To date, more than 800,000 people with severe disabilities have been approved through this accelerated, policy compliant disability process, which has grown to a total of 266 conditions.”

The complete list of Compassionate Allowances (CAL) conditions can be viewed on SSA’s website.
