    Can’t Work Because of a Heart Condition? Get Support You Need.

    Heart disease brings a web of worry to your life. You watch what you eat, what you do, how excited you get. If it’s severe enough to keep you from working, bills pile up and add to the list of things you’re anxious about.

    To find financial relief, you do have at least one option. Social Security Disability benefits are made for people facing unexpected health problems.

    If approved, the monthly checks, possible back pay, and access to Medicare or Medicaid can make life easier for you.

    Social Security, however, doesn’t make getting benefits easy on you. Most people who apply for benefits are denied on their first try.

    Heart disease includes many different conditions and symptoms that could make you eligible for benefits. But you’ll need to provide detailed records of your case to have a chance.

    A skilled disability lawyer can help.

    Troutman & Troutman is a family-owned Oklahoma disability law firm founded to help Sooners in times of need. With more than 150 years of combined legal experience, our team has helped over 10,000 people win benefits, including many people living with heart disease.

    How Do I Prove My Heart Disease Qualifies for Social Security Disability?

    To prove to Social Security that your heart disease keeps you out of work, you’ll need to do your homework. They won’t take your word for it—or your doctor’s, for that matter. You’ll have to back up your claim with hard medical evidence.

    The first step is to describe the demands of your job, your past jobs, and any other job your skills may qualify you for.

    Next you’ll have to carefully document your symptoms that get in the way of those tasks. With a heart condition, this could be constant dizziness, shortness of breath, numbness, discoloration or swelling in your arms or legs, as well as a host of other debilitating signs of cardiovascular problems.

    The key to a solid claim will be the medical records that are created when you go in for treatment. Social Security will want to see:

    • Physical exams reports
    • Exercise test results
    • Electrocardiogram (ECG) data
    • Lab test results
    • Your treatment plan
    • Medications you are prescribed to take
    • Assessments of how your efforts to manage your heart disease are working
    • The history of your condition over time, as complete as possible

    Gathering this information takes time and coordination with your medical team to check all the boxes Social Security puts in front of you.

    At Troutman & Troutman, we deal with this system every day on your behalf.

    When heart disease is disrupting your ability to support yourself and your family, we’re here to help you get financial assistance and a sense of stability and peace back in your life.

    Sometimes the problem is the way you explain your situation.

    Don’t gloss over details about how your health problems restrict your daily life just to sound more positive, for example. Don’t go to a checkup and tell your doctor you feel OK just to be polite.

    But don’t exaggerate your struggles, either.

    Social Security Disability lawyers who’ve been through this process thousands of times know how to strike the right balance for your disability appeal. And you don’t pay a fee for an attorney unless you win.

    Let us handle the tricky parts of the disability determination process, so you can get financial relief and move on.
