Heart Conditions That Qualify For Social Security Benefits
Heart disease and cardiovascular problems affect millions of Americans, which is why certain conditions are often considered disabling.

Common Heart Conditions
In order to determine if a claimant is eligible for benefits, the Social Security Administration (SSA) will first check if the individuals condition is listed in their Blue Book. The book contains conditions that are considered so severe that an individual will immediately be considered disabled.
Some cardiovascular disorders for which people may apply for SSDI include:
- Chronic heart failure
- Ischemic heart disease
- Recurrent Arrhythmias
- Aneurysm of aorta
- Peripheral arterial disease
- Congestive heart failure
If your condition is not listed in the SSA Blue Book it does not mean you will be denied benefits. At Phillips Disability P.C. we will work hard to ensure that you obtain the benefits you need to get your life back on track.
Signs of Heart Disease
There are several contributing factors to heart disease, such as years of exertion at a physically demanding job, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or stress. Some common signs of heart disease include:
- Chest pain
- Shortness of breath
- Pain in the neck or jaw
- Fainting or near fainting
Unfortunately, many individuals who suffer from cardiovascular problems are not aware of the issue until they suffer from a heart attack or stroke. It is important to watch for cardiovascular symptoms and to speak with a doctor to obtain a medical diagnosis.
