Who Qualifies For Fast Track: The Stats
Posted in: Application Process on August 5th, 2011

What you might not know about Social Security Disability Insurance and Supplemental Security income is that there is a way to make the application process go faster.  The truth of the matter is that there is a very long wait for benefits – even if you got accepted to one of these programs the day you applied, there would still be a six month interim period between getting accepted and getting benefits fastFor many people who have life threatening conditions and are unable to work, however, this wait is just too long.  Because of this, there is something that is called a Compassionate Allowance, for certain disabilities that require money and immediate medical condition to manage.  Depending on the severity of your disability and the threat it makes to your life, you may be able to get your disability payouts quicker due to the compassionate allowance.

Who Qualifies and Who Does Not?

There is a list of 100 different disabilities that qualify individuals for fast track acceptance to either Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income.  The list itself is available on the Social Security Administration’s website at www.ssa.gov, but if you’d like some quick stats on the eligibility of individuals for fast track, here they are:

  • About 1 in every 25 applicants receives expedited processing due to the compassionate allowance;
  • About 4.5% of all initial disability claims filed qualified for expedited processing in the fiscal year of 2010, but this number is expected to increase between 6 and 9 percent by 2012

The good news is that if you qualify for expedited processing, your case will generally be processed within two weeks.  The bad news is that if you are not qualified, the case could take between 500 and 700 days on average.  Be sure to check if your disability is on the qualification list for expedited processing.
