What Is The Social Security Disability Benefits Process?

Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits provide critical financial assistance to individuals who are unable to work due to a disability. Thousands of such individuals throughout Ohio, as well as their families, rely upon these benefits. To get these benefits, however, you need to have a successful application. This means you need the right proof about your work history and your medical impairments and medical limitations. Many deserving individuals are denied each year because they do not give Social Security enough evidence of their disability and their physical or mental limitations.

To qualify for SSD, you must show that you are suffering from a serious medical impairment or impairments that have become limiting to the point that you can no longer work for at least 12 months in a row. This must be supported by doctor opinions, medical records and other evidence. You must also have spent a certain number of years in the workforce, paying in sufficient taxes to Social Security.

We help clients through each step in this process, knowing what is required for a successful claim. Our lawyers are hands-on and involved throughout the claim, traveling to hearing offices all over Ohio, including Columbus, Lima, Toledo, Cleveland, Akron, Cincinnati or Dayton to attend hearings. We also attend hearings in Wheeling and Parkersburg, West Virginia. We will be at the hearing with you. We will explain what to expect and provide you with the representation you need to make your record.

And, if you had a hearing but were denied by a judge, we will see if we can save your case for you — even if another lawyer represented you at the hearing or if you had no attorney or representative at all. Other attorneys commonly refer clients to us after they have been unsuccessful in obtaining an approval for the client, trusting us to help in the appeals process.
