People in Oklahoma who have an injury, illness or condition that prevents them from working can seek disability benefits from Social Security. While there is often a wait time to be approved for SSD benefits, there are some applicants who need their benefits faster than others. This can be because the conditions from which they suffer are of sufficient severity and progress with such rapidity that they are deemed to have met the requirements and will get their benefits without the normal amount of time elapsed. This is through the Compassionate Allowances program.
Sometimes the basics of receiving Social Security Disability benefits can be the most confusing aspect of the entire process. Obviously, the requirements must be met.
