SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION USA

The Social Security Administration (SSA), under the guidance of Commissioner Michael Astrue has been working with NORD and others in the rare disease patient community to reduce unnecessary delays that people with rare diseases often encounter when they apply for financial assistance through SSA. Through a program called “Compassionate Allowances”, SSA is identifying extremely disabling rare diseases to expedite the application for assistance from patients with those diagnoses.
Read about the Compassionate Allowances Program and view lists of diseases identified for that program to date at the following website: http://www.ssa.gov/compassionateallowances/
