Disability for Heart and Cardiovascular Problems

Make the most of your claim. We've helped 225 clients find attorneys today.

In evaluating cardiovascular disability claims, the SSA focuses on whether your heart problems (such as the narrowing of your coronary arteries or your heart's reduced pumping capacity), limit your functioning so much that you are not able to work without risking adverse cardiac events. Most people who apply for disability for heart conditions are evaluated under the SSA impairment listings for ischemic heart disease (coronary artery disease and heart attacks) or chronic heart failure (congestive heart failure).
