If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s Disease, it’s important for you to know that this condition has recently been made eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. The Social Security Administration added Younger/Early Onset Alzheimer’s to the list of eligible conditions under its Compassionate Allowances (CAL) initiative. This gives people with this disease expedited access to SSDI and SSI benefits by reducing the length of the disability decision process.

The CAL initiative is very important for those seeking benefits due to early onset Alzheimer’s because individuals with this disease (or other forms of dementia) are often initially denied benefits – but usually win on appeal. Alzheimer’s patients face many challenges and circumstances that can be financially and emotionally draining. The CAL initiative can help you to avoid a long, drawn-out disability decision process and help you to start receiving benefits more quickly.

The Social Security website offers helpful information and guidance to assist you in applying for SSDI or SSI benefits. However, your chances of having your application approved are better if you hire an experienced attorney or professional advocate to help file your claim.
