Do Cardiac Conditions Qualify For Social Security Disability?

For someone who suffers from a cardiac condition, gainful employment may not be possible. If you are in a position where your heart disease has made it impossible to work, Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits can provide much-needed financial support. Unfortunately, the Social Security Administration (SSA) does not make the process of obtaining benefits simple.

At Ayers, Whitlow & Dressler in Charlotte, North Carolina, our lawyers have been helping people secure the SSDI benefits for cardiac conditions and other health conditions since 1979. We know what the SSA is looking for in a disability claim and can help you build the strongest possible case for benefits, even if you have already been turned down.

Is Heart Disease A Qualifying Disability?

Heart disease can make it impossible for a person to work five days a week. The three basic types of qualifying cardiac conditions include:

  • Chronic heart failure
  • Coronary heart disease (also known as astherosclerotic or ischemic heart disease)
  • Congenital heart disease

Heart disease can place many limitations on a person’s ability to work, leading to issues such as:

  • Numbness, pain and tingling in legs due to poor circulation
  • Fatigue
  • Chest pain or angina
  • Inability to perform physical activities

Our cardiac condition disability lawyers can help your doctor understand how to present your diagnosis and supporting medical information in such a way that the SSA will recognize it as a qualifying disability.
