Expansion of Social Security Compassionate Allowance Program

The Social Security Administration has expanded its Compassionate Allowance Program to 12 additional medical conditions.  The Compassionate Allowance Program identifies particularly severe claims and allows a disability finding for Supplemental Security Income or Social Security Disability Insurance for them on the basis of medical confirmation of the diagnosis alone.  The new compassionate allowance conditions are: Deletion Syndrome, Anaplastic Ependymoma, Calciphylaxis, Cholangiocarcinoma, FOXG1 Syndrome, Leber Congenital Amaurosis, Metastatic Endometrial Adenocarcinoma, Paraneoplastic Cerebellar Degeneration, Pineoblastoma – Childhood, Primary Omental Cancer, Sarcomatoid Carcinoma of the Lung – Stages II-IV, and Trisomy 9.  (Social Security Dear Colleague Letter, August 14, 2023.)
