Relief for the Financial Pressure
If you’ve living with the limiting effects of heart disease, you’re far from alone.
Almost half of adults in the United States have some form of heart disease, said the American Heart Association. It’s the No. 1 cause of death, said the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Heart disease is enough stress on its own, but when your condition means you can’t work, the loss of income and ability to pay your bills puts you under even more pressure.
You have an option for financial relief—Social Security Disability benefits.
Monthly disability checks can make a difficult time in life a little easier.
The trouble is, heart disease comes in many forms and levels of severity. Proving that your case means you can’t work can be difficult. Most people initially get denied.
When you’ve been denied, Rosenfeld & Morgan will handle all the forms, evidence, rules and steps involved with appealing that decision. Our mission is to lighten your burden so you can tend to your health.
We help people in South Bend and throughout Michiana win the disability income they need.
In fact, Social Security Disability is all we do.
Heart Disease Means Many Things. Which Conditions Are Covered?
Heart disease is a broad term. Many individual impairments fit under that label. For the purpose of disability benefits, Social Security officially recognizes many different conditions under heart disease, including:
- Chronic heart failure
- Chronic venous insufficiency
- Congenital heart defects
- Congestive heart failure
- Ischemic heart disease
- Peripheral artery disease
- Recovery from a heart transplant
Because you must prove to Social Security that your poor health is severe enough to prevent you from working in any job for at least a year, you’ll need to show medical evidence of your symptoms.
Those could include:
- Chest pain
- Circulation problems
- Episodes of losing consciousness
- Feelings of chest tightness and pressure
- Injuries from poorly functioning veins or arteries
- Pain in your arms, legs, neck or jaw
- Poor heart chamber functioning
- Pale or blue skin
- Shortness of breath

What Medical Evidence Do I Need for Heart Disease Disability Benefits?
The ongoing medical treatment you receive for your heart disease will provide the most important ingredients in your disability claim.
That’s why it’s important to get regular care if at all possible. Your treatment will produce records you can use to argue for benefits, such as:
- Doctor reports on how well your treatment has worked
- Electrocardiogram (ECG) results
- Exercise test results
- Heart imaging
- Physical exam results
- Statements from people who know you about your daily functioning
- Stress test results
Let the Rosenfeld & Morgan legal team keep track of all these documents, records and reports and build a strong argument for you to receive disability benefits.
You earned these when you worked and paid into the Social Security system. We’re proud to help our neighbors in Indiana and Michigan when they’re struggling with health and money worries.
