Disability Benefits for Heart Disease
Social Security Disability Lawyers
Do you suffer from Heart Disease?
Heart disease is a condition that affects the function of the heart. It is the leading cause of death in the United States. Heart disease can manifest in many different forms including coronary artery disease, arrythmias, heart failure, heart valve disease, congenital heart disease, heart muscle disease, pericardial disease, Marfan syndrome, or vascular disease. Chest pain, shortness of breath, palpitations, dizziness, nausea, chest pressure, arm pain, and extreme weakness are all symptoms of heart disease.
Social Security looks at how heart disease affects your maximum physical ability to perform work-related activities on a continuing basis. Social Security must consider the nature and extent of your heart disease, and how this condition restricts your ability to sit, stand, walk, lift, carry, push, and pull, as well as your ability to perform postural or manipulative activities (i.e. bending, twisting, stooping, reaching, fingering, or feeling). Social Security will also assess any further limitations that your heart disease might cause, such as a need for environmental restrictions, unscheduled breaks, or excessive absences due to symptoms or treatments.
