In August 2021, the Acting Commissioner of the Social Security Administration (SSA), Kilolo Kijakazi, announced 12 New Compasssionate Allowances (see my earlier blogs for a list of other Compassionate allownce cases) to add to a list of 254 conditions. This program “accelerates the disability application process for people who are likely to get approved for benefits due to the severity of their medical conditions.”To date, more than 700,000 people with severe disabilities have been approved through this accelerated, policy-compliant disability process. https://www.ssa.gov/news/press/releases/2021/#8-2021-1
