Compassionate Allowance Conditions “Social Security has an obligation to provide benefits quickly to applicants whose medical conditions are so serious that their conditions obviously meet disability standards. Compassionate Allowances (CAL) are a way of quickly identifying diseases and other medical conditions that invariably qualify under the Listing of Impairments based on minimal objective medical information. Compassionate Allowances allow Social Security to target the most obviously disabled individuals for allowances based on objective medical information that we can obtain quickly. Compassionate Allowances is not a separate program from the Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income programs. “ https://www.ssa.gov/compassionateallowances/index.htm

 

Look up Non Small Cell Lung Cancer and Small Cell Lung Cancer and select those from the list for more information if you are having a difficult time getting disability approved.
