Social Security Offers Fast-Track Benefits for Brain Tumor and Cancer Patients
The U.S. Social Security Administration (SSA) recently announced a new “Compassionate Allowances” initiative designed to speed up disability claims for applicants with several medical conditions, including those with certain brain tumors and other cancers. When combined with SSA’s Quick Disability Determination process, this initiative should allow six to nine percent of disability claims to be processed within six to eight days. A news release on the program is available at: http://www.socialsecurity.gov/pressoffice/pr/compassionate-allowances-1008-pr.htm.
