Does My Congestive Heart Failure Qualify for Disability Benefits?

The Social Security Administration, the government agency that handles all disability benefit applications, has specific criteria to evaluate whether your CHF is a disabling medical condition. In order to prove you meet these criteria, your medical records must show that you suffer from severe, continuing heart failure even after treatment. You also need to show that your complications include either systolic heart failure (the heart’s pumping strength is weakened) or diastolic heart failure (the heart cannot fill properly with blood). In addition to proving either systolic or diastolic heart failure, your medical history needs to show that you suffered from specific symptoms such as episodes of heart failure that caused hospitalization with the past 12 months. If you can prove you suffer from these complications and symptoms, your condition will be considered a disabling medical condition, qualifying you to receive disability benefits.

If you cannot show that you have suffered from the specific complications and symptoms required then you might still be eligible to receive SSD benefits. Even if your symptoms or complications are not severe enough to be considered disabling, your CHF may still prevent you from working. If your medical records prove that your condition is preventing you from working like you have in the past, you may qualify to receive benefits because of your functional limitations.
