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.
Many Ohio residents consider disabilities to affect the physical body, such as complications from a traumatic brain injury, burns or broken bones. What about emotional injuries, you may wonder? Can something like chronic anxiety or post-traumatic stress disorder be disabling enough to prevent you from working?
