Listing of Impairments – Social Security Benefits for Heart Failure | Brandon Social Security Disability Attorney

Congestive heart failure may be the basis for Social Security disability claim.

Unfortunately, heart failure is a life-threatening condition because the heart can’t pump enough blood to the rest of your body. As a result, blood may back up in other areas of your body including your liver, gastrointestinal tract, and extremities. It can lead to failure of other organs because your organs don’t get enough oxygen. This can damage them and reduces their ability to function properly.

The most common causes of heart failure or hypertension and coronary artery disease. The disease is almost always chronic and long term.

Listing 4. Congestive Heart failure is a medically intensive listing. By that I mean, there are very specific physical and diagnostic findings that must be met to establish this listing. I would highly recomend you contact an experienced Social Security Disability Lawyer such as Nancy Cavey to help you through the claims process.
