Cardiovascular diseases are covered by social security disability benefits granted by the Social Security Administration. Benefits are available no matter if you have had the condition since you were a child or developed it later. That means if you or a loved one has a heart or circulatory disease, you may want to apply for disability benefits, including caretaker benefits, if eligible.
