New Compassionate Allowance Conditions

Posted by John Kuhnlein | Aug 23, 2018 | 0 Comments

Social Security has announced that five diseases have been added to their list of conditions eligible for the compassionate allowance.  This is a program wherein Social Security looks for those medical problems that are so severe that Social Security is likely to approve anyone with them for Social Security disability benefits. These medical disorders are so bad that Social Security can approve a disability claimant based on a diagnosis

Rage, Rage Against The Dying Of The Light


The new conditions are:

Fibrolamellar cancer

Megacystis microcolon 

Intestinal hypoperistalsis syndrome 

Superficial siderosis of the central nervous system

Tetrasomy 18p

I sincerely hope that no one reading this has any of these dread diseases. But, if you or someone you know does, have that person get in touch with Social Security immediately.

About the Author

John Kuhnlein

Since 1992, I have been helping the people of Southern Arizona get the benefits they are due. Before devoting all my efforts to assisting people with Social Security disability claims, I also handled such complex lawsuits as medical malpractice and products liability. I brought to my Social Security cases all the skills and attention to detail that I developed in the courtroom. I approach each Social Security disability case as if it were a million-dollar lawsuit. For the people trying to get Social Security benefits, their claim is every bit as important. Because I have personally handled so many Social Security cases, I have refined the skills I need to win your case for you. I have helped people win cases for every kind of ailment from arthritis to valley fever. At present, I am focused on helping those persons with neurological and orthopedic disorders. Because claims for people over age fifty bring additional complications, I particularly seek out those cases to work on. I regularly write about back and spine conditions on my blog. I actively seek out the latest information about orthopedic and neurological disorders to ensure I can represent my clients as effectively as possible. Because of my current focus, I regret that I am not able to take any cases for mental disorders. If you are over age fifty and suffer from any orthopedic or neurological disorder, please contact me at once.
