Social Security Adds 12 New Compassionate Allowances Conditions

July 25, 2011

Washington- Social Security Administration (SSA) has added 12 new medical conditions to its Listing of Impairments under Compassionate Allowances (CAL) system, a statement from its website said.

The SSA recognized 12 more types of illnesses pertaining to adult brain disorders, heart diseases, and certain cancers. People who suffer from such impairments will receive recommendation from CAL. Claimants may then gain higher approval for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits.

CAL system assists the Disability Determination Services (DDS) in screening applicants. It provides simpler procedures and allows releasing of checks within two weeks. The speedier process provides immediate aid to people whose illnesses can result to death in a short period of time.

Some of the approved conditions are Aortic Atresia, Eisenmenger Syndrome, Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, Mitral Valve Atresia, and Pulmonary Atresia. The complete list of recognized illnesses can be seen on

The SSA is expecting to accept 150,000 pertinent cases this year.
