Listing of Impairments – Social Security Benefits and Lung Transplant | Sarasota County Social Security Disability Lawyer

Have you or someone you know had a lung transplant? You might be able to file a claim for Social Security disability benefits as a result of the underlying conditions that caused you to have a lung transplant or as a result of the lung transplant itself.

Listing 3.11 directs the Social Security administration to evaluate a Social Security disability claim as a result of a lung transplant by looking at whether you’ve been disabled for at least 12 months after your surgery. After 12 months, the Social Security administration is to evaluate your residual physical impairments.

If you don’t meet a listing, you will need to develop the medical and vocational evidence that establishes that you cannot return to your past relevant work or engage in employment in the national economy in view of your age, education, or transferable skills. Most people who’ve undergone a lung transplant have residual functional problems that include shortness of breath, loss of stamina, as well as fatigue and side effects of medication. These postoperative problems will help you establish your entitlement to Social Security disability benefits.
