How to Qualify for Social Security Disability with Ischemic Heart Disease

When you have ischemic heart disease, you could be experiencing symptoms like these:

  • Chest pain
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Shortness of breath
  • Swelling in your abdomen
  • Heart palpitations
  • Weight gain
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Dizziness
  • Cough or congestion from fluid in your lungs
  • Fainting

Though you know you’re having these symptoms—and you may have even been hospitalized at some point—you’ll have to prove to the Social Security Administration (SSA) that working is completely impossible in order to qualify for benefits.

This means you must meet at least one of the following:

  • An exercise test that demonstrates to the SSA that you are eligible for complete disability
  • Three separate ischemic episodes, where a revascularization procedure was not possible, or where you needed revascularization each time
  • Evidence of coronary artery disease including an exercise test, a medical document showing that an exercise test would be unsafe, medical imaging or an angiography

You will also need to meet the SSA’s standard for qualification for any condition. You’ll have to show that:

  • Your condition has forced you out of work
  • You will not be able to work for at least one year
  • You are unable to switch to another line of work

You’re already dealing with a lot stress. So let Becker Law Office handle the paperwork, evidence, deadlines and procedures for your disability appeal, including helping you prepare for your hearing with a disability judge.
