Early Onset Alzheimer’s Disease and Social Security Benefits

Share

Social Security Administration (SSA) has added early-onset/younger onset Alzheimer’s to the list of conditions under its Compassionate Allowance Initiative, giving those with the disease expedited access to Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). This is potentially great news for individuals and families devastated by such a touch diagnosis. The Alzheimer’s Association played a key role in advocating for this change and has information about what it means and other important checklists and information for families on their site and the specific link below:
