Foot issues may lead to disability benefits

Ohio residents or others who experience foot drop could be declared unable to work because of a disability. In most cases, foot drop in itself is not a reason to allow a person to obtain disability benefits. However, it could be used to show that he or she has a neurological or musculoskeletal condition that may make it difficult or impossible to hold down a job. Generally speaking, medical evidence will be used to determine if this is the case.

SSI benefits may be available for disabled minors

Children with disabilities in Ohio may be entitled to benefits through the Supplemental Security Income program of the Social Security Administration. Most often, SSI applies to adults, but children might qualify if they meet the requirements of the SSA definition of disability. To be eligible, the relevant party also must not exceed the household income and resource limits established by the SSA. Adults who have been disabled since they were under 18 years of age might be eligible for a different type of benefit through Social Security Disability Insurance.
