The one dozen new diseases and conditions that qualify SSDI applications to be fast-tracked are all illnesses of the heart – a decision that illustrates the SSA’s acknowledgement of the seriousness of heart diseases and related conditions. The new additions to the Compassionate Allowances were added during a serious of meeting in which the SSA listened to input from a variety of sources.
Other conditions on the Compassionate Allowances list include a number of cancers, early-onset Alzheimer’s disease, and other quickly-moving or fatal conditions.
