My Husband Was Diagnosed With Chronic Heart Failure In South Florida By His Cardiologist. Is It True He Can Receive Social Security Benefits?

A: Your husband being diagnosed with Chronic Heart Failure is one thing. Receiving those benefits is another. Here’s what you need to know about eligibility.

How Chronic Heart Failure (CHF) Patients in South Florida May Qualify for Social Security Disability Benefits:

  1. Good News! You do not need to have fluid retention at the time of evaluation. Your medical records do need to show a history.
  2. Medical News! Your CHF condition must be severe enough to require medication.
  3. Diagnostic News! You need to prove that you either have systolic or diastolic failure. Make sure you have the diagnostic info needed by Social Security.
  4. Serious News! You must have been hospitalized 3 times during the last 12 months for reasons related to heart failure and fluid retention.
