Steps in appeals for SSD and SSI cases

When suffering from an injury, condition or illness in Ohio, Social Security disability benefits or Supplemental Security Income can be imperative. If the application is denied, the person might not realize that there are options to appeal. Once the initial determination is made and the claim is denied, the appeals process allows the claimant to ask that the decision be reversed.

What's the difference between SSDI and SSI benefits?

When a person is unable to work because of a physical or mental disability, this is more than an inconvenience. It often leads to hardship and financial struggles, especially for those who will have to deal with their disability long-term. In some cases, these Ohio individuals are eligible for benefits from the Social Security Administration. 

Benefits for disabled widows or widowers

Some Ohio residents worry that they may be left without Social Security benefits if their spouse were to pass away. However, the widow or widower of someone who received Social Security disability or Social Security retirement benefits might be able to continue receiving these benefits in certain situations.

Changes may jeopardize Social Security disability benefits

Disability recipients in Ohio may be required to prove their status to case reviewers more often if new rules are approved. The change proposed by the Trump Administration would affect an estimated 16 million Americans who receive payments under two programs handled by the Social Security Administration. Some groups are opposing the new rules by claiming the review process is already damaged. Administration officials claim the new rules will net the program about $1.2 billion per year.
