Can I get disability benefits for Peripheral Arterial Disease: Peripheral Arterial Disease (P.A.D.) is a disease in which plaque builds up in the arteries. Over time, the plaque can harden, which causes a narrowing of the arteries, limiting the flow of blood throughout your body, which can cause various problems and even lead to death if not treatment properly and in a timely manner.
Peripheral Arterial Disease usually effects the arteries in the legs, but it can also affect the arteries which allow blood to flow to your heart, hear, arms, kidneys and stomach.
Symptoms of P.A.D. vary according to where the narrowing takes place. Some may have painful cramping, numbness, decrease in muscle strength and fatigue, while some may never experience any symptoms until it is too late.
The Social Security Administration lists PAD as a condition which can be disabling when the symptoms interferes with the person’s ability to engage in sustained work activity. Listing 4.12 in the Code of Federal Regulations lays out in specifics the impairments which a sufferer has to have in order to qualify for Social Security Disability Benefits for this condition; however, if you do not “meet or equal” this listing, you may still be entitled to disability benefits if your condition, in conjunction with any other physical or mental impairment, prevents you from returning to work you have done in the past and other substantial work you might be qualified to perform given your age, education and acquired work skills.
If you or a loved one lives in Alabama, you are suffering with P.A.D. and you believe you are disabled as the result and are entitled to Social Security Disability or SSI benefits, you do not have to take on the Social Security Administration alone.
