Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello and welcome to JA. Dr Saleem here. Will be answering you shortly
Sorry to hear about your health situation. Plz mention your age and gender.
The Social Security Administration (SSA) will evaluate whether you qualify for disability under its listing for “chronic heart failure.” To qualify for disability benefits under the SSA’s listing for chronic heart failure, you must have been diagnosed with severe continuing heart failure despite being on heart medication. The SSA’s listing doesn’t require that you have fluid retention at the time of evaluation to get disability benefits, but your medical records should show that you had fluid retention at some point in time. You must have the required objective symptoms and functional limitations below.;
The SSA will give you a rating of the type of work it thinks you can do, called your residual functional capacity (RFC). Your RFC will rate your ability to do sedentary work, light work, or medium work. For instance, if your doctor has limited you to no lifting more than 10 pounds, your RFC will be for sedentary work. Or, if your exercise tolerance test shows you can do little physical exertion before you develop symptoms (such as shortness of breath, chest discomfort, heart palpitations, or confusion), you will probably get a light RFC. Next, the SSA will determine if whether you can do your prior job given the limitations of your RFC. If you can’t, it will look at your education level, age, and experience to determine if there’s any other kind of work you can safely be expected to do (or whether you should get a medical vocational allowance).
Does it help?
