What Is An SSDI Disability?

Ohio Social Security Disability Attorneys

To be eligible to receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits, you must be able to demonstrate that you have a physical disability, mental disability or a combination of the two that is expected to significantly impair your ability to work for at least 12 months or that may cause death.

The term disability refers to any medical condition that may impact your ability to work for the required period (12 months or more), including any physical injury, illness, mental disorder, brain impairment or other serious medical condition that significantly impairs your ability to work.

Work Impairment

Social Security Disability laws are strict when it comes to the issue of work impairment. Even if you are unable to return to your previous occupation, you are not eligible for benefits if you are able to transition to a new occupation. Your education, work history, age and other factors will be taken into consideration when determining your ability to find work. For disabled individuals 50 and over, there is an assumption that it is more difficult to transition to a new field of employment. Visit our section on 50 and over claims to learn more.

If retained to handle your case, our job is to build a compelling case for the SSDI benefits you are entitled to receive. If you are not eligible for SSDI benefits, you may still be eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits.

To build strong cases, we take the time to listen carefully to our clients, thoroughly review their medical records, work with their doctors as necessary and prepare each case with meticulous care. With more than 35 years of experience helping injured and disabled clients, our firm is in a strong position to provide the necessary guidance and effective representation in even the most complex Social Security Disability cases.
