Qualify for social security disability benefits in less time with this program and the help of a brandon security disability attorney
Social Security Disability Insurance provides valuable assistance to those who have lost the ability to work as a result of a physical or mental disability. For instance, those who are no longer able to use their hands or those who suffer from schizophrenia may qualify for Social Security disability benefits. However, applying for Social Security disability benefits can be a complex process, and many applications are initially denied due to technicalities in the paperwork or insufficient medical documentation. As a result, the timeline for actually receiving benefits is a lengthy one.
The Compassionate Allowance Program was designed to expedite benefits for those are clearly disabled and who need benefits right away, such as those suffering from a fatal illness. Yet even those who qualify for this program might have a hard time getting benefits quickly thanks to some misinterpretation of medical documents or a failure to put together a strong application. A Brandon Social Security disability attorney from The Golden Law Group can help you understand your rights under the Compassionate Allowance Program and create a strong application so that your benefits are fast-tracked.
Eligibility requirements for the Compassionate Allowance Program
As of 2010, there are 88 specific conditions listed that qualify people for The Compassionate Allowance Program. Examples of some of these conditions include acute leukemia, ovarian cancer, and Tay Sachs disease. You can find a complete list of the conditions accepted in the program on the Social Security Administration’s website.
Not all terminal conditions qualify for The Compassionate Allowance Program. For example, simply having AIDS is not enough to qualify. Applicants must experience severe symptoms or a late stage of the disease to qualify.
The application for The Compassionate Allowance Program is the same as the application for Social Security disability benefits. Social Security staff members are trained to identify the conditions that qualify for the program and to fast-track those applications. However, many of these applications are still delayed or denied because of missing information or documentation. Applicants are encouraged to include copies of medical records confirming the diagnosis of the condition, such as a biopsy report for a cancer. Working with a Brandon Social Security disability attorney can get the benefits you need quickly. We help you compile all the necessary documentation and ensure your application meets all the requirements before submitting it. This way, you can avoid unnecessary delays that could cost you the financial support or medical treatment you need.
We also help you challenge a denial of benefits, putting together a stronger case that shows your need and aggressively fight for your benefits. Upon successful appeal, you can collect benefits that you would have received going back to the date when you filed the application.
