Description: 

Faced with the reality of an unprecedented backlog of 2.8 million claims in 2009, and longer wait times for applicants, the Social Security Administration (SSA) rolled out its Compassionate Allowances program in October 2008 in an effort to provide benefits quickly to applicants whose medical conditions are so serious that their conditions obviously meet disability standards.

A modest 50 conditions—25 rare diseases and 25 cancers—were selected for the initiative’s rollout, and 38 new diseases were recently added.
