Yakima man speaks to lawyer about appealing a workers' comp denial

Do You Want Someone with Experience to Help You Win Social Security Disability?

Living with heart disease leaves you on edge. It can mean a heart attack, chronic heart failure, recurrent arrhythmias or aneurisms. It’s life-altering.

It’s draining both physically and emotionally. You can take medication, exercise, eat right and live a healthy life, but you still worry.

What if you can’t work anymore because of heart disease? That’s more stress, added to all the worry.

You still need to support yourself. The electric company and mortgage lender still want their payments.

There is a solution: You can apply for Social Security Disability (SSD). Disability benefits give you monthly income to help you cope with debilitating heart disease—and they give you hope.

In Yakima, Kennewick, Sunnyside, Spokane, Wenatchee, Richland, Walla Walla or Ellensburg, you could qualify for benefits with any of these types of heart disease:

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

For help getting benefits, talk to the experienced Social Security Disability lawyers at Bothwell & Hamill. We’ve helped people in Central Washington for over 40 years.

Heart Disease Symptoms that Can Qualify for Social Security Disability

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

It’s extremely common. Among the people who have it, some can mostly continue their normal lives. Others have symptoms that limit their daily activities.

The key to winning Social Security Disability benefits is that your case must be severe enough that you can’t work.

You show that by providing medical documentation of acute symptoms, which can include:

  • Racing or slow heartbeat
  • Chest pain or discomfort
  • Shortness of breath
  • Dizziness
  • Fainting or near fainting
  • Lightheadedness

Though you know how hard it can be to get through your day when you suddenly feel dizzy or you can’t breathe, that alone isn’t enough to qualify you for SSD benefits in Central Washington. You have to confirm your symptoms to Social Security Disability.

You do this with medical evidence like this:

  • A report from your last physical
  • Results of a stress test or electrocardiogram
  • Statements from your doctor
  • Heart imaging

The Social Security Administration (SSA) makes the process tough in order to avoid dishonest claims. You must be unable to work—at all—for at least one year due to your symptoms.

The disability lawyers at Bothwell & Hamill can help you understand if you have a strong claim for benefits. It costs nothing for you to have an initial conversation.
