Can I file for Social Security Disability online in Ohio?

The Social Security Administration is the federal agency that is responsible for determining who qualifies for Social Security Disability benefits, and how much those benefits will be. As has been discussed before in this space, generally the SSA will accept an application and then forward it to a local office run by the state in which you live, which will schedule an interview to gather the necessary information needed to make a decision on your case. There is another way to apply, however, which is through the SSA's website, by filling out an online application.

What is a 'compassionate allowance condition' for SSDI purposes?

This space has been used previously to discuss various ways of qualifying for Social Security Disability Insurance. Obtaining the correct documentation to prove to the Social Security Agency that you are unable to work due to a physical or mental condition that will last longer than a year or result in death can be difficult at the best of times. Further, as has been touched on before, most disability claims are denied at the first step of the application, meaning that case may have to go to a hearing in front of an administrative law judge, a process that can take some time to complete.

Can you attend an SSDI hearing by video teleconferencing?

Technology seems to accelerate at an exponential pace, especially here in the 21st Century, and the efficient utilization of it tends to drive the profits of quite a few businesses. Though the legal system and government entities, apart from military applications anyway, are not generally known for being on the cutting edge of technological advancement, there are still times where tech performs important functions in such areas.

What work history is relevant when applying for disability?

Previously in this space, we have touched on the various requirements necessary to qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income. Both these federal programs, as administered by the states, serve as a safety net of sorts for those people who cannot earn an income because some physical or psychological handicap prevents them from being gainfully employed. As we have said in the past, this means that the person who is applying needs to show that he or she is unable to work due to a disabling condition, and that the condition is terminal, or has lasted or is expected to last longer than one year. But how does the Social Security Agency go about determining which jobs a person needs to show he or she cannot perform?
