As a previous post discussed, there are government programs like disability that could benefit those that are suffering from serious and terminal illnesses. The Social Security Administration (SSA) devised the Compassionate Allowance program so those diagnosed with a severe or terminal illness could quickly get the benefits he or she needs. But in order to enjoy the benefits of the program, applicants in New York and elsewhere should understand the process and what qualifies them for this program.Because the SSA has an obligation to provide benefits to those suffering from disabling illnesses and conditions as quickly as possible, the Compassionate Allowance program was designed to make this process even quicker for those suffering from a medical condition that is so serious that he or she obviously meets the disability standards set by the SSA.The Compassionate Allowance program operates on a list of qualifying conditions. This list is based on the conditions that are selected by using information from public outreach hearings, comments received from the Social Security and Disability Determination Services communities, from the opinions of medical and scientific experts, and from the research conducted with the National Institutes of Health.If an individual has a disease or medical condition on this list, he or she is quickly qualified for the program. Additionally, applicants for this program only need to provide minimal objective medical information. This makes the application process quickly, allowing for approval to occur much sooner when compared to other applicants that are not applying for the compassionate allowance program.Being diagnosed with a serious or terminal illness is a difficult event to process; however, those facing such gruesome news should understand that they could qualify for benefits. While this cannot change their medical condition, these benefits could assist individuals with medical bills and their cost of living while he or she is seeking medical treatment.

Terry Katz, Esq.
Terry Katz, Esq., the founding Member of the firm, handles all aspects of Workers’ Compensation and Social Security Disability cases.
Hiring Terry Katz and associates to represent my interests in my Workers Compensation and Social Security Disability case proved to be a smart decision that yielded an extremely successful outcome.
Through the lengthy and intricate process I came to realize just how valuable having a team of highly skilled representation was, and that is just how to describe the law firm of Terry Katz and Associates “Highly skilled legal representation”. I’d like to thank the entire team who worked on both my cases all of whom were always professional, knowledgeable and extremely caring. Throughout my entire case all of my calls and emails were always returned in a timely manner. My questions always answered competently and professionally. I always understood the process and felt a confidence in the process that I would not have had if not for hiring Terry Katz and Associates.
Mostly I’d like to thank Ms. Langdale who worked tirelessly on both my workers compensation case and my social security disability case. Her representation and legal prowess in the court room was nothing short of impressive to witness. I will never forget how confidently represented and protected I felt during her opening remarks at my social security disability hearing.
During these difficult times I was truly grateful to have Ms. Langdale working so diligently and expertly for my interests.
