The Social Security Administration (the “SSA”) tries different types of initiatives and programs on a regular basis. Usually, those programs reduce the number of claims being approved. For example, the SSA virtually eliminated the authority of staff attorneys to write OTRs , and the SSA increased the number of claims approved by ALJ’s for review .
The SSA may have another initiative currently. The SSA seems recently to be approving cancer claims more rapidly. In fact we had two more such claims approved today. While compassionate allowances , which include many cancers, are always supposed to be expedited, that has frequently not been the case.
The SSA does not automatically approve cancer claims. However, bringing it to the attention of the right people at the SSA should expedite its resolution, especially if there is presently a focus on such claims.Previous Next
