Social Security Administration’s Compassionate Allowances List

The Social Security Administration’s (SSA) Compassionate Allowances list is designed to help Americans suffering from severe disabilities get the Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits they need quickly. If you have a Compassionate Allowances condition, your application will be automatically targeted for expedited processing with minimal medical evidence, allowing you to get your benefits in days or weeks, rather than months.

Our SSD attorneys are here to support you if you’re suffering from a Compassionate Allowances condition. Whether you have questions about SSD eligibility requirements or need assistance getting adequate medical evidence, we want to help.

List of Compassionate Allowance Conditions

Hundreds of conditions qualify for the SSA’s Compassionate Allowances Initiative. Many of them are rare or have specific severity requirements, but some of the more common conditions include:

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
  • Bladder cancer (with distant metastases, inoperable, or unresectable)
  • Brain tumors
  • Breast cancer (with distant metastases, inoperable, or unresectable)
  • Early-onset Alzheimer’s disease
  • Esophageal cancer
  • Gallbladder cancer
  • Head and neck cancers (with distant metastases, inoperable, or unresectable)
  • Leukemia
  • Liver cancer

These are just some of the conditions on the SSA’s Compassionate Allowances list, and new conditions are added on a regular basis. Visit the SSA’s List of Compassionate Allowances for the most current list of conditions that qualify for expedited processing.
