Social Security Benefits with HCM

HCM, or hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (or hypertrophic obstructed cardiomyopathy), affects between 1 in 200 and 1 in 300 worldwide.  If you have HCM and you are unable to work due to severe symptoms, you might be eligible for Social Security disability benefits in the United States. The Social Security Administration (SSA) offers monthly financial resources for people who are unable to maintain employment due to a serious illness.
