A: If you've been denied Social Security Disability benefits and have since had a stroke, you may have grounds to reapply. It's important to gather all your medical records, including documentation of your heart attack and stroke. These documents will support your case and show the severity of your health issues.

Reapplying with updated medical evidence can strengthen your claim. Ensure you detail how these conditions impact your ability to work and perform daily activities. Sometimes, having a detailed and clear application makes a significant difference in the decision-making process.

Consider reaching out to a knowledgeable professional who can guide you through the appeals process. They can help you understand what information is crucial and how to present it effectively. Remember, persistence is key, and there are resources available to assist you in navigating this complex process.
