National SSDI hearing processing times continue to lengthen

We have previously discussed several aspects of the hearings and appeals process for people who have been denied benefits for Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income. As a reminder, these hearings happen only after the Social Security Administration has made a negative decision on an application, and a review by a different SSA officer has reached the same conclusion. The hearings are held before an Administrative Law Judge.

Applying for SSDI can be tricky if you are working or studying

We have talked about many different aspects of applying for Social Security Disability Insurance and Supplemental Security Income on this blog. We have discussed eligibility requirements, definitions, procedures for applying and appealing decisions, as well as taking a quick look at some specific illnesses and how they might be evaluated by the Social Security Administration. We have also touched on what happens when you or someone in your household does have some income, even if you are disabled.

Do family members of a disabled person get benefits in Ohio?

We've discussed quite a bit about how a disabled individual in Ohio may go about qualifying for either Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income benefits. From the definition of disability, to the type and amount of evidence that may be required for certain illnesses, to how working a little may affect one's benefits, there's a lot of information to absorb. There is one other issue that many people wonder about when it comes to disability benefits. That is, can members of a disabled person's family receive benefits based on the disabled person's social security case?

Can weight loss be a disability for SSDI purposes?

While many Ohio residents, and Americans in general, are constantly looking for the next 'miracle diet' to help them lose weight, there are some who would be happy to gain it. We should be clear that we are not talking about cosmetic body changes in this post, but actual, serious illnesses that cause some people to be continuously losing weight, and can cause grave complications. Unfortunately, these physical disabilities sometimes make it very difficult to hold down a job and support oneself.
