Angina

Calculate Your Disability Benefit

Does SSA Qualify Angina as a Disability?

Angina is a common condition seen in disability applications for Social Security (SS) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). However, having angina alone does not necessarily qualify a person for disability benefits. To be eligible, the Disability Listing for Ischemic Heart Disease states that applicants must have had one of the following:

  • an abnormal stress test showing severe limitations upon exertion,
  • three ischemic episodes requiring angioplasty, bypass, or laser revascularization, or
  • an abnormal imaging result showing severe narrowing of a coronary artery.

How Do I Get Approved for Benefits with Angina?

Most applicants can fulfill the imaging requirement by having an angiogram that shows at least 70% blockage in a main artery such as the right coronary artery, left anterior descending artery, or circumflex artery.
