There are numerous conditions associated with the cardiovascular system that can qualify a person for Social Security disability in Denver. Depending on the severity of your symptoms or circumstances, you may be able to win benefits if you are affected by these conditions or others.

Chronic Heart Failure

In order to qualify for disability benefits, your condition must include systolic or diastolic heart failure. Even while your heart is stable, there are parameters its performance must fall within to qualify you for benefits. Additional features of proving this condition may include an exercise performance test, providing dates for hospital stays, and/or evidence of other symptoms which prevent you from working.

Chronic Venous Insufficiency

An obstruction is the first condition you must meet to qualify for benefits under this condition. You may also need to provide evidence of a brawny edema that encompasses at least two-thirds of your leg from your ankle to your knee, or one-third of your leg from your hip to your ankle. Persistent ulcerations that fail to heal after three months of treatment may also be presented as evidence of your condition.

Ischemic Heart Disease

Building your case for benefits due to ischemic heart disease (also called coronary heart disease) requires varying demonstrable proof. A coronary artery disease may necessitate medical imaging, an angiography, an exercise test (or proof of symptoms that make this impossible). Evidence of three distinct ischemic episodes or an exercise test demonstrating your performance falls within the SSA’s range for complete disability may also qualify you for Social Security disability in Denver.

Aneurysms, Heart Transplants, and Other Conditions

If you have the appropriate medical imaging to confirm an aneurysm of the aorta (or another major branch), you are likely to be awarded disability benefits. Having a heart transplant is another condition that almost certainly guarantees you benefits for a year. There are many other medical conditions that fall under this system category, including blood clots, peripheral artery disease (PAD), recurrent arrhythmia, and symptomatic congenital heart disease. This is not an exhaustive list; if you are struggling with another cardiovascular condition whose symptoms prevent you from working safely or at all, you should still consider applying for benefits.
