Peripheral Artery Disease and Your Rights to Social Security Disability Benefits
Do you have muscle cramping in your legs with physical activity? Experience numb, cold or weak legs? Slow to heal foot sores?
You may be suffering from Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) which occurs when plaque builds up on the walls of your arteries that supplies blood to your legs. If you have diabetes, smoke, have high blood pressure, are 50 or over or are African American, you are at a higher risk for Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD).
If your doctor has told you to stop working as a result of PAD, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability benefits.
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is a payroll tax funded insurance program that’s designed to provide you with income if you are unable to work as a result of a disability.
Social Security defines disability as a medical condition that:
1. Lasts a year or will result in your death;
2. Prevents you from doing the work the work that you previously did;
3. You can’t adjust to other work because of your Peripheral Artery Disease.
The Social Security Administration doesn’t always make it easy to get the disability benefits you deserve.
