The Help You Need When A Heart Condition Prevents You From Working

Certain types of heart diseases and cardiovascular problems may qualify you for disability benefits through the Social Security Administration (SSA). These include:

  • Aneurysm — Weakness in the wall of the blood vessel results in a bulge in the aorta, brain or other arteries. A rupture can lead to fatal bleeding.
  • Arteriosclerosis — Hardening of the arteries occurs when fatty or calcium deposits cause artery walls to thicken.
  • Congestive heart failure (CHF) — Veins become backed up with blood returning to the heart, resulting in congestion in the tissues.
  • Coronary artery disease/ischemic heart disease (IHD) — Arteries are clogged and narrowed, restricting blood flow and depriving the heart of oxygen.

Being diagnosed with one of the above or any other heart condition does not guarantee disability benefits through the SSA. Certain standards must be met, including, but not limited to proof that limitations in physical exertion or abnormalities in the heart muscle or vessels leading to the heart exist.

Similar to other SSDI or SSI applications, the chances of an initial rejection are high. The help of an attorney is vital in pursuing an appeal. Our Social Security Disability attorney, Joshua Landers, understands the stakes involved when our clients are suffering from serious heart conditions and unable to make a living. While they focus on their health, he attends to every detail in his aggressive pursuit of disability benefits.
