Even so, not all heart conditions may qualify for Social Security Disability benefits in Michigan. In fact, even a heart attack is not enough on its own to qualify. Social Security Disability serves workers who may not be able to return to work in the next 12 months, but many people who suffer from a heart attack are back behind the desk in a few weeks to a few months.

What is the Ticket to Work program?
