Qualifying for Disability Benefits with Syncope

Syncope is the medical term for fainting or passing out. It occurs when you have a sudden, temporary drop in the amount of blood that flows to your brain. Most of the time, a harmless, short-term cause makes you faint. Syncope is more common as you get older and affects up to 6% of people over age 75. To learn more about how the Social Security Administration (SSA) defines this disability, visit Section 4.00 of the Blue Book.

Does Syncope Qualify for Disability?

Yes, people with syncope do qualify, but they need to meet the requirements of the SSA’s guidelines for this disability. You should be able to provide medical records, treatment reports, and test results to show that your condition is indeed serious and that it limits your ability to work or engage in meaningful activity.

Even with supporting medical documentation, you must have suffered from syncope for a period of two years or be expected to suffer from syncope for a period of two years in order to qualify for benefits.
