A Compassionate Allowance For Hearts
Posted in: Conditions/Illness on July 27th, 2011

It’s no secret that heart disease is the number one killer of Americans.  In addition to the large number of people who succumb to heart disease each year, there are millions who are struck so severely that they are no longer able to work.  Should this happen to you or somebody you love, you may be considering applying for Social Security Disability Insurance.  This is a government program that hands out benefits based off of how long the worker previously put into the system.  The average payout is 1,500 dollars per month.

Heart Disease and Disability How Do You Get Benefits?

However, getting the benefits is not easy.  In order to qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance, the filer has to prove his or her condition, as well as provide a host of legal and governmental documents.  Even then, should an individual be considered qualified for Social Security Disability Insurance, there is still a wait period of six months before the money starts to arrive.  That is, if you get approved for benefits in January, you won’t see money until August.

There is good news on the horizon, though: the Social Security Administration is considering putting heart disease on the list of conditions that qualify for a “compassionate allowance,” which allows the benefits to be delivered faster due to the severity of condition.  Generally, this list includes various kinds of cancers, leukemia, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.  This is good news for those who are currently suffering from heart disease and those who know individuals who are; it’s always nice to hear that the government still has a heart!
