To qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits, you need be “disabled” according to the definition of disability established by the Social Security Administration (SSA).

Qualifying for SSDI Based on a Heart Problem
Cardiovascular impairments — heart problems — are one form that this disability can take.
According to the SSA, a cardiovascular disorder is any disorder that affects the functioning of the heart or circulatory system or a disorder of the veins or arteries, which results from a consequence of heart disease:
- Chronic heart failure or ventricular dysfunction
- Pain resulting from myocardial ischemia
- Syncope, or near syncope, due to inadequate cerebral perfusion from any cardiac cause
- Central cyanosis due to right-to-left shunt, reduced oxygen concentration in the arterial blood, or pulmonary vascular disease
As you can see, the SSA has detailed and very specific requirements for people who apply for disability benefits on account of heart problems. If you want your SSDI application to be successful, it is important to work with a law firm that has experience in this area of law, knows the medical terminology, and can help you through every step of the often long and arduous process of obtaining benefits.
What Heart Conditions Qualify for Disability?
According to the SSA, the following heart disease and cardiovascular problems may also be qualifying conditions for receiving disability benefits:
- Congestive heart failure
- Coronary artery disease
Is Having a Pacemaker a Qualifying Disability?
No. By itself, having a pacemaker is not a qualifying disability when it comes to receiving Social Security disability benefits. However, if you still suffer from heart disease or cardiac disability symptoms even after having a pacemaker installed, you may be eligible to receive certain disability benefits. Our attorneys can help you determine whether or not you qualify for these benefits in a free initial consultation.
