Social Security Compassionate Allowance List – 2017

Social Security Compassionate Allowance List (2017)

Having a condition on the Compassionate Allowance List typically means that a Social Security applicant’s claim will be processed faster. But it does not mean that the Social Security claim will be “automatically” approved in every case. Many of the impairments on the CAL are considered to be disabling based on a diagnosis alone. But some other conditions on the Compassionate Allowance List must still meet certain criteria of severity.

New conditions have been added to the Social Security Compassionate Allowance List every year since it was instituted in 2008. The list below ios current as of 2017.
