The Compassionate Allowances initiative is designed to expedite the Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) approval process for applicants with the most severe disabilities and illnesses.
Most people who apply for disability do not qualify for a Compassionate Allowance and after waiting months, find that their initial application is denied. Unfortunately, this is normal and very common. The important thing is to not give up. The majority of people who are denied disability and follow through the appeals process will go on to have their disability claim approved at a disability hearing. This will often take many months and sometimes years.
Your chances of winning your disability hearing are much higher if you are represented by a disability attorney or non-attorney representative.
