How to Get SSDI Payments for High Blood Pressure

Helping You Obtain the Benefits You Need

The majority of people who apply for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits for high blood pressure/hypertension have their applications denied the first time.

Hypertension and Social Security Disability Claims

Hypertension is another term for high blood pressure. The Social Security Administration (SSA) categorizes this as a cardiovascular disorder. In addition to being frequently linked with obesity, hypertension is also commonly accompanied by other cardiovascular problems that include:

  • Chronic heart failure
  • Ischemic heart disease
  • Recurrent arrhythmias
  • Symptomatic congenital heart disease
  • Heart transplant
  • Aneurysm of aorta or major branches
  • Chronic venous insufficiency
  • Peripheral arterial disease

SSA has a strict definition of "disability." To qualify for benefits, you need to have an injury or illness that will be permanent and render you unable to work. You also need to establish to the SSA's satisfaction that you are indeed disabled, and this is where it gets more complicated. The legal and medical complications involved with the Social Security process are daunting for most people who do not handle these cases every day.
