Ohio Social Security Disability And SSI Legal Blog

Does your ailment qualify for SSD?

Residents in Ohio suffering from certain injuries or disabilities maybe eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD) or Social Security Insurance (SSI). Manring & Farrell are here to discuss what some of the most common disabilities or injuries that result in SSD and SSI may be.

A lot of the conditions and ailments eligible for SSD are chronic conditions with no cure, or with very intensive recovery processes. Some examples include:

  • Cancers
  • Respiratory disorders
  • Heart failure
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic pain disorders
  • Crohn’s disease

These are severe conditions that affect every aspect of your life, making it difficult to maintain the standard of living you may have once been used to. SSD can be used to supplement possible lost income and help cover the medical bills that treatment for these ailments may cost.

Mental health issues can also be eligible for SSD. Anxiety, depression and bipolar disorder are among them. Similarly to the physical ailments listed above, severe cases of mental health disorders can also cause a disruption to one’s quality of life. You may be unable to work your previous job. Medications and therapy can also be costly and just as critical as treatment for physical injuries.

Dealing with the financial, physical, mental and emotional strain of impairment or disability can be a heavy burden to carry. For this reason, having the financial backing of SSD can help to ease at least some of those worries.
