Birmingham Alabama Disability Attorneys Compassionate Allowances

If you live in the Birmingham Alabama Metropolitan area* and believe that you are disabled given a physical or mental condition, chances are you will be denied after your initial application. The Social Security Administration does not have the personnel or resources to ensure that they receive a complete copy of everyone who applies for Social Security Disability benefits or SSI benefits medical records, especially now given the government's cutbacks. However, the Social Security Administration has a special set of rules-called Compassionate Allowances. Compassionate Allowances 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 quickly target the most obviously disabled individuals for allowances based on objective medical information that they can obtain quickly.

This is last blog in which we have listed these conditions which fall under the Compassionate Allowance guidelines. We hope that this has been helpful.

Single Ventricle,

Small Cell Cancer of the large intestine, ovary, prostate or uterus,

Small Cell Lung Cancer,

Small Intestive Cancer-with distant metastases or inoperable, unresectable or recurrent,

Spinal Muscular Atrophy-Types 0 and 1,

Thyroid Cancer,

Tricuspid Atresia,

Ullrich Congenital Muscular Dystrophy,

Ureter Cancer-with distant metastases or inoperable, unresectable or recurrent,

Walker Warburg Syndrome,

If you have been medical documented with one of these conditions, hopefully you will be awarded Social Security Disability benefits or SSI benefits, but should you be denied, don't despair and don't give up; call an experienced Birmingham Alabama Social Security Disability Attorney to help you appeal your decision. The Birmingham Alabama Disability Attorneys at Powell and Denny would be happy to speak with you about your claim for Disability benefits.
