The Social Security Administration put the Compassionate Allowance Program in place to properly identify claims where the applicant’s disease clearly meets the administrations standard of disability.
Acting commissioner of Social Security, Nancy Berryhill, recently announced the addition of three new Compassionate Allowances conditions to the current list. These conditions include:
- Vanishing White Matter Disease
- Congenital Myotonic Dystrophy
- Kleefstrsa Syndrome
Nancy Berryhill explained, “Social Security is committed – now and in the future – to continue to identify and fast-track diseases that are certain or near-certain to be approved for disability benefits.”

The Compassionate Allowances Program does not cover all medical conditions, but there is still help out there for those in need of social security disability benefits.
With the IT program in place, those who have been diagnosed with a medical condition not covered by the program can utilize the benefits of the Social Security IT program. This program allows Social Security to obtain ones medical records much faster and more efficiently bypassing the wait of health care organizations.
It is important for all applicants to keep detailed medical records throughout the application process. In order for the Social Security Administration to make an accurate determination of ones conditions the applicant must submit detailed medical records.
