I just had my second heart attack. Can this be considered a short-term or long-term disability?
A heart attack can cause disability. The question is how the heart attack has affected your level of function and ability to work. If your symptoms and health cause you to be unable to function in your workplace, you may be entitled to short term disability and, depending on the duration and severity of your symptoms, you may be entitled to long term disability benefits.
