The Claimant has a terminal illness.  2. There is an indication that the Claimant is suicidal or homicidal.  3.  There is dire need, which means that the claimant is unable to obtain food, medicine or shelter and proof of dire need (i.e., foreclosure or eviction imminent).  Aside from these Critical Cases, there is little anyone can do to speed up this lengthy process.
