Is it Easier to Get Disability Benefits if You Have a Compassionate Allowances Condition?

The process of applying for Social Security disability benefits can be a long and arduous one. It can take months for a claim to be approved or denied, and very often your claim ends up being denied -- at least initially. While a Los Angeles disability benefits attorney can help you to maximize the chances of a claim being approved, getting benefits is always an uphill battle. 

However, there are certain individuals for whom getting benefits can be easier: those with a compassionate allowances condition. 

Getting Disability Benefits is Easier with a Compassionate Allowances Condition

Getting disability benefits can be much easier if you have a compassionate allowances condition (CAL) because the Social Security Administration has set up a system to expedite the process of benefits approvals.

Compassionate allowances conditions are severe conditions that typically make you entitled to benefits and that are generally easily provable with clear medical data. For example, many types of metastatic cancers are considered to be compassionate allowance conditions. 

When you have a condition on the compassionate allowance list, not only is it easier for you to get your benefits claim approved, but you can typically get this approval in a matter of weeks rather than having to wait months or even years to get benefits.

A Los Angeles disability benefits attorney can help you to determine if you have a compassionate allowances condition and if you may be able to get your benefits through the streamlined process. An attorney can also help with benefits applications both for individuals with and without a compassionate allowances condition. Contact an attorney today to find out more.
