Social Security Disability For Heart Disease

Dedicated To Obtaining SSD Benefits For Cardiovascular Conditions

Obtaining Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits for heart disease or other cardiovascular conditions can be a complex process. As the applicant, you need to prove that your heart problems have limited your ability to function to the extent that you are not able to work without significant risk to your health and/or life. Additionally, you must meet specific medical criteria established by the Social Security Administration (SSA).

Given the complexities of applying for SSD benefits, your claim can be helped greatly with the knowledgeable legal advice and representation. At Turley Redmond & Rosasco, L.L.P., we have helped more than 10,000 clients with SSD claims over the past 25 years. Our lawyers are fully prepared to handle heart disease claims for individuals throughout Long Island.

A Range Of Heart Diseases Qualify For Disability Benefits

Our New York attorneys navigate clients through the entire claims process, from initial application to hearings and appeals. Several heart conditions may qualify for SSD benefits, including:

  • Coronary artery disease/ischemic heart disease (clogged or narrow arteries) — can deplete the heart of oxygen
  • Congestive heart failure — may result in swelling (edema), irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia)
  • Arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) — can result in a heart attack
  • Aneurysm (bulge in an artery) — could be fatal if ruptures

Most applicants who apply for disability for a heart condition are rated by strict impairment listings from the SSA, and it is not uncommon to have your initial application denied.

Call Our Legal Team For Dedicated Legal Representation

Even if your initial claim has been denied, our legal team can help. We have a high rate of success with disability hearings before an administrative law judge (ALJ), which is the next step after a denied application. We will ensure you are fully prepared for the hearing, including for your testimony, and customize your claim to your individual circumstances and to the ALJ who is deciding your case. And we will be there with you at every step, including being a present and strong advocate at the hearing itself. Our goal is to help you obtain fair and full benefits for your disability.
