Listing of Impairments – 4.0 Cardiovascular System | Tampa Bay Social Security Disability Attorney

You can get Social Security benefits for heart conditions. Listing 4.0 Cardiovascular System covers impairment from cardiovascular disease based on symptoms, physical signs, laboratory test abnormalities, and response to therapy. Social Security wants to see longitudinal medical records that outline your treatment, therapy, response to treatment and your functional recovery.

Your cardiovascular disease may entitle you to Social Security disability benefits

It is crucial that you be able to explain the impact of your heart condition on your daily functioning and how often, how severe, and the duration of your symptoms.

These listing are only common cardiovascular disorders that are severe enough to prevent you from engaging in gainful activity. If you have medically determinable impairment that is not listed or have a combination of impairments no one of which meets a listing, the Social Security Administration will consider a medical equivalence determination.

Of course, if you do not meet a listing, you may still be entitled to Social security disability benefits if you can establish that you are unable to return to the lightest job you held in the last 15 years before you became disabled and establish that you have exertional and non-exertional impairments that limit your employability based on your age, education, and transferable skills.

The cooperation of your treating physician is crucial to the success of these cases. I have found that electrocardiograms and exercise stress test are key to developing the medical evidence of your restrictions and limitations so that you can win your Social Security disability case.

If you suffer from this condition and wish to file for disability benefits you should strongly consider seeking the help of skilled Social Security Disability attorneys such as Nancy Cavey or Sharon Barrett.
