Disability Benefits Help For Alzheimer’s
Posted in: Conditions/Illness on February 22nd, 2012

Alzheimer’s disease has brought much attention and a sense of urgency in recent years. As researchers scramble to find a cure or treatment for the devastating disease, many others are working to bridge the gap of services available in the mean time. A new federal plan aims to help the fight against Alzheimer’s by implementing a few key ideas.

Changes Ahead

The government’s plan is to make $50 million available for state of the art Alzheimer’s research. These funds will help boost research efforts in finding and developing a way to combat the disease. An additional $80 million for Alzheimer’s research also is planned for 2013, as part of the National Alzheimer’s Project Act of January 2011 that called for an aggressive and coordinated national Alzheimer’s disease plan.

The Social Security Administration added the diagnosis of the early-onset of the disease to its Compassionate Allowances program, which is a list of pre-approved conditions that qualify for faster application processing. The fast-track evaluation for Social Security Disability benefits will be able to expedite disability claim processing for those suffering with the disease.
