Disability Involving the Heart and Circulatory System

When you apply for Social Security or SSI disability benefits for a  heart condition or cardiovascular disease, Social Security requires that you submit medical records going back at least three months. This allows your doctors and Social Security to see how well you respond to treatment. If you've had heart surgery, Social Security may want to wait six months to make a disability determination. It can be difficult to convince Social Security that your heart condition cannot be improved enough with treatment to allow you to work, even if you have ischemic heart disease, congestive heart failure, an aneurysm, or have had past heart attacks or a pacemaker installed.
