Help for disable workers beyond SSDI?

In Ohio, the Social Security Disability Insurance Program (SSDI) was paying benefits to 378,923 individuals in 2012, or about 5.3 percent of the state's population at the time. This is higher than the national average of 4.7 percent, and not surprising, given the significant history of industrial jobs, like heavy manufacturing and coal mining, in the state.

After fatal workplace accident, plant is hit with huge fine

Pilkington, a company that is based out of Toledo, Ohio, had a worker die in one of its glass plants in 2010. The plant in question was in Indiana, and the worker was crushed by machinery, leading to his death. The Indiana Occupational Safety and Health Administration inspected the plant at that point, found a number of safety violations and asked that they be fixed.

SSDI growth appears to have stabilized

As many of our Ohio clients know, the process to obtain Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) benefits is anything but straightforward. The complicated application requires a great deal of information concerning a worker's disability, with supporting medical documentation and additional information concerning their work experience and educational history.

1 man killed in construction accident, jury finds company liable

If you're hurt at work or have lost a loved one due to a workplace accident, then you may be familiar with the legal process that surrounds the case. In a wrongful death case, you may be able to seek compensation for medical bills, funeral costs, and other things, and workers' compensation should be available to you, like it should have been to this family of a man who was killed when inspecting roadway construction.

SSA has another backlog

Congressional hearings this month again raised the question of how the Social Security Administration (SSA) is conducting its reviews of Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) benefit payments. According to the hearings, the SSA currently has a backlog of 1.3 million reviews that it needs to conduct.

Ohio educator left with injuries after armed-assault drill

No matter how it happens, an injury at work is still the responsibility of your employer. If you fall on unmarked wet floors, hit your head on unmarked low ceilings, or cut yourself on dangerous equipment, you deserve to get the medical treatment you need and the pay you deserve for your on the job injuries. You might not yet have heard about this story of a teacher in Boardman, but you may be able to understand his plight.

Simple errors can stop SSDI payments

When you apply for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits, you have to complete a complex application form to submit to the Social Security Administration (SSA). The application allows you the opportunity to provide evidence to the SSA that will support your award of SSDI benefits.

Woman's legal and deserved Social Security denied

How would you feel if you found out that you couldn't get Social Security Benefits because someone has claimed that you're already receiving workers' compensation in Ohio? The two shouldn't be exclusive, but in this woman's case, she was denied for her Social Security Disability benefits because the office believed she was getting reparations from workers' comp. According to the April 2 report, the woman visited the Social Security Administration office to ask why her Social Security Benefits weren't arriving on the fourth Wednesday of the month as usual.
