What about “dire circumstances” and “critical need” cases?

Most people waiting for a determination on their SSA claim are in pretty desperate
economic straits.  If a claimant makes a compelling case that his or her circumstances
with regard to housing, food, medical care and other necessities are
exceptionally
“dire” or “critical” relative to other claimants,  “critical case” status is sometimes granted
by ODAR.  Granting the status generally means an earlier hearing date.
 It is not a
finding of disability.
