Aneurysm and Social Security Disability Benefits Attorney

Cook County Medical Conditions and Social Security Benefits Lawyer

An aneurysm is the abnormal dilation of the arteries due to weakening of the arterial wall. Aneurysms can occur in any artery in the body. However, aneurysms are most common in the aorta or other major branches. A doctor can perform a number of different imaging tests and other types of tests to determine whether you suffer from aneurysms.

If you or someone you know suffered an aneurysm and want to see if you qualify for Social Security disability benefits (whether SSDI or SSI), fill out our no obligation online consultation form.

Can I Get Social Security Disability Benefits If I Suffered An Aneurysm?

Aneurysms are recognized by the Social Security Administration. If you suffered an aneurysm and it is preventing you from working for at least 12 months, you may qualify for Social Security disability benefits (whether SSDI or SSI), even if your application has been denied. When you apply for disability benefits for aneurysms, the Social Security Administration will first determine whether your condition is severe enough to meet a listing. If you meet a listing you will be found disabled. If you do not meet a listing, the Social Security Administration will then evaluate your residual functional capacity (the most work that you can do despite your medical condition(s)).

Is There A Specific Listing For Aneurysms?

The Social Security Administration recognizes an aneurysm under Listing of Impairments 4.10: Aneurysm of aorta or major branches, which can be found on the Social Security Administration website. However, because most of the listing is structured using medical terminology, it can be quite difficult to know whether you will meet the aneurysm listing. If you or a family member suffered an aneurysm and are unable to work and want to know more about whether you might qualify for Social Security disability benefits (either SSDI or SSI), contact our Chicago, Illinois Social Security disability lawyer by filling out our free online consultation form.

If I Do Not Meet The Listing, Is There Another Way To Get Social Security Disability Benefits?

Yes! If you do not meet Listing 4.10 and an aneurysm is preventing you from working, you may still qualify for Social Security disability benefits.

The Social Security Administration will proceed with your case by evaluating your Residual Functional Capacity. To do this, the Administration will determine the most amount of work that you can do despite your limitations. They do this by dividing “work” into four different categories: heavy, medium, light, and sedentary. It is worth noting that there is sometimes a fifth category that is recognized for very heavy work; however, very heavy work is scarcely used. Whether a claimant wins his or her disability claim is greatly affected by which category he or she is ultimately put into. Being put into a lower category increases the likelihood that a claim is approved for Social Security disability benefits.
