"This year, from 3.2 to 3.3 million people will apply for benefits," Commissioner Astrue said. "Approximately 150,000 people have received Compassionate Allowances this year, typically receiving disability benefits in two weeks or less."
I am not very familiar with benefits offered by Social Security however, this listing includes liver cancer.
Does anyone have any information pertaining to qualification of accelerated benefits due to Cholangiocarcinoma?
