How to Get Disability Benefits for Congestive Heart Failure in Wisconsin

The Financial Support You Deserve in a Tough Time

When your heart doesn’t work as well as it should, your life can change completely.

If you’re living with congestive heart failure, you’re all too familiar with this reality. Instead of worrying about your commute to work, you’re worrying about which doctor is best for you.

Maintaining your full-time job has become impossible. It’s why you need Social Security Disability benefits, which can provide lifesaving financial support when you need it most.

Winning benefits is unfortunately difficult. Many first-time applicants are turned away.

An experienced disability attorney can provide the guidance you need to win. At the Becker Law Office, we’ve made it our mission to help our neighbors in Madison, Wausau, and all over Wisconsin when they’re in need.

Let us help you today. Give us a call to get started.

How to Qualify for Social Security Disability with CHF

Sadly, you can’t just tell Social Security you have congestive heart failure. You have to prove it.

Social Security places the disorder in the “chronic heart failure” CHF umbrella. That means you’ll have to show you have one of the following types of heart failure:

  • Systolic failure – This is when your heart isn’t pumping blood as strongly as it should.
  • Diastolic failure – This happens when the muscle in your heart becomes stiff, limiting the heart’s filling capacity.

You’ll also need to meet Social Security’s standard for qualification:

  • Your health has forced you out of work.
  • You cannot switch to a different line of work.
  • You won’t be able to work for a year or more.

We know this can all sound overwhelming. Our staff can answer any questions you have.

We’ll never treat you like a file number. Our attorneys will get to know you and your family so we can best represent you—and give you the best chance to win.

We’ll even evaluate your case for free.

If You’ve Been Denied, This Isn’t the End

If you’ve been denied benefits, you know how cruel the whole process can feel.

You’re the one suffering, and now a cold, unfeeling government entity is telling you that you’re not worth their time.

The good news? This isn’t the end of the road.

Social Security features a multi-step appeals process with chances to win your benefits at each juncture. Your best chance comes at an appeals hearing with an administrative law judge (ALJ), which is your only chance to plead your case in person.

You don’t have to go through that alone, either. In fact, the government’s own statistics show that you’re three times as likely to win at an appeals hearing if you hire representation.

So don’t take a chance on your future. Call the compassionate disability attorneys at the Becker Law Office today to get started.

Disability Law is all we do.
