If there is a delay in your claim for Social Security Disability benefits and you are starting to get frustrated, you are within your rights to turn to the members of Congress who represent your district or Ohio as a whole. Though your congressional members do not have the power or authority to instantly resolve any and all Social Security claims issues, they can sometimes be helpful in expediting a stalled claims process.
The amount you can receive in Social Security benefits as a disabled widow or widower in Ohio varies depending on a number of different factors. These include the date that you became disabled, your age and whether you care for children under the age of 16. If you choose to remarry, that can have an effect as well, although it depends partly on the other factors.
