What does a critical case review look like?

I have previously discussed expediting Social Security disability cases for Dire Need. I recently came across the worksheet that Social Security uses when evaluating these cases:

This includes consideration of the following issues:

  • Terminal illness.
  • Wounded warrior.
  • Compassionate allowance.
  • Dire need.
  • Suicidal/homicidal ideation cases.

Here is a link to the HALLEX for the form. Note: this a form Social Security uses internally. You do not need to use this to request consideration as a critical case. All you need to do is write a letter to the SSA office working on your case and state why the case should be expedited. Of course, the reason(s) should fall into one areas discussed above.

    This is great info that I was not aware of. Are all “Dire Need” cases expedited similar to how compassionate allowances are expedited?
