Question: Can I get Social Security disability for varicose veins?

Answer: Very possibly. It depends upon the severity of your varicose veins, your age and any other health problems you may have.

There are many people with mild varicose veins who could not possibly get on Social Security disability because of their varicosities. There are other people with severe varicose veins tha severe swelling,  skin changes and skin ulcers. Those folks stand a good chance of winning. Of course, there are others who are in between. Their varicose veins cause them pain and swelling. They have a hard time standing for long. They need to elevate their legs. In these cases, a lot depends upon the claimant’s age. Being over 50 helps a lot.

Other health problems matter a lot too. Diabetes and varicose veins are a bad combination for the patient. Where those two are combined, a person’s health will suffer and the chances of being approved for Social Security disability go up. Other problem which do not interact with the varicosities can make a case stronger, such as mental illness.
