What are the two ways to get approved for Ohio SSDI?

If you live in Ohio and have a disability that prevents you from working, you may have questions about applying for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. For example, you may have heard that there are two methods by which you can be approved for benefits: either by satisfying the requirements of one of the conditions contained in the SSD "list of impairments" or by receiving a "medical vocational allowance."

Should I appeal after being denied an SSDI claim in Ohio?

Filing for Social Security Disability benefits can be a frustrating experience. After filing your claim, gathering evidence and giving it to the Social Security Administration, it is still possible your claim will be denied. When this happens, it is not always easy to know what to do. Should you appeal the decision, or file a new claim, hoping for a better result?

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, sometimes called "Obamacare," expands the categories of people eligible to receive Medicaid. Medicaid is the government's free insurance system that is meant to be utilized by those individuals who are not provided health insurance through the workplace, and cannot afford to buy it elsewhere. While some states have balked at participating in this expansion, Ohio has followed the federal law and allowed more of its citizens to become eligible for the Medicaid program.
