 SSA Adding 38 New Compassionate Allowances (Effective March 1)

News Release

Social Security Adds 38 New Compassionate Allowance Conditions

Expansion Will Speed Benefits to Thousands of Americans with Disabilities

Michael J. Astrue, Commissioner of Social Security, today announced that the
agency is adding 38 more conditions to its list of Compassionate Allowances.
This is the first expansion since the original list of 50 conditions - 25
rare diseases and 25 cancers - was announced in October 2008. The new
conditions range from adult brain disorders to rare diseases that primarily
affect children. The complete list of the new Compassionate Allowance
conditions is attached.

"The addition of these new conditions expands the scope of Compassionate
Allowances to a broader subgroup of conditions like early-onset Alzheimer's
disease," Commissioner Astrue said. "The expansion we are announcing today
means tens of thousands of Americans with devastating disabilities will now
get approved for benefits in a matter of days rather than months and years."

Compassionate Allowances are a way of quickly identifying diseases and other
medical conditions that clearly qualify for Social Security and Supplemental
Security Income disability benefits. It allows the agency to electronically
target and make speedy decisions for the most obviously disabled
individuals. In developing the expanded list of conditions, Social Security
held public hearings and worked closely with the National Institutes of
Health, the Alzheimer's Association, the National Organization for Rare
Disorders, and other groups.

"The diagnosis of Alzheimer's indicates significant cognitive impairment
that interferes with daily living activities, including the ability to
work," said Harry Johns, President and CEO of the Alzheimer's Association.
"Now, individuals who are dealing with the enormous challenges of
Alzheimer's won't also have to endure the financial and emotional toll of a
long disability decision process."

"This truly innovative program will provide invaluable assistance and
support to patients and families coping with severely disabling rare
diseases," said Peter L. Saltonstall, President and CEO of the National
Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD). "On behalf of those patients and
families, I want to thank Commissioner Astrue and his enthusiastic team for
creating and now expanding a program that will have a direct impact on the
quality of life of thousands of individuals."

"The initiative not only assists those whose applications are quickly
processed, but also assists those whose applications need more time and
attention from SSA adjudicators," said Marty Ford, Co-Chair, Social Security
Task Force, Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities. "We are pleased to
see today's expansion and look forward to working with Commissioner Astrue
on further expansion of this decision-making tool and other ways to expedite
determinations and decisions for disability claims."

"We will continue to hold hearings and look for other diseases and
conditions that can be added to our list of Compassionate Allowances,"
Commissioner Astrue said. "There can be no higher priority than getting
disability benefits quickly to those Americans with these severe and
life-threatening conditions."

Social Security will begin electronically identifying these 38 new
conditions March 1.
