Hypophosphatasia and Social Security (CAL)

Effective August 11, 2012, Hypophosphatasia Perinatal (Lethal) and Infantile Onset Types meet the compassionate allowances (CAL) disability standards.

Social Security has an obligation to provide benefits quickly to applicants whose medical conditions are so serious that their conditions obviously meet disability standards.

Compassionate Allowances (CAL) are a way of quickly identifying diseases and other medical conditions that invariably qualify under the Listing of Impairments based on minimal objective medical information. Compassionate Allowances allow Social Security to target the most obviously disabled individuals for allowances based on objective medical information that they can obtain quickly. Compassionate Allowances is not a separate program from the Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income programs. (this information is from ssa compassionate allowances web page)
