Qualifying for SSD benefits for mental conditions

Many of our readers in Ohio know that Social Security Disability benefits are available for people who are no longer able to work due to debilitating illnesses or injuries. However, some people are not aware that these same benefits could be available to those who suffer from mental conditions - not just physical health conditions.

Your workers' comp claim came back denied, so what's next?

If you suffered an injury in the workplace, this is much more than just an inconvenience for you. You could be suffering from painful injuries that prevent you from working as well as financial harm. Work-related injuries can be both painful and expensive, leaving you unable to work for an extended amount of time. 

Understanding the definition of disability

Most of our readers in Ohio know that Social Security Disability benefits may be available for workers who, usually through illness or injury, are no longer able to work. However, there is much more to it than that. For starters, our readers should know what the definition of a disability is, according to the Social Security Administration.

Lawmakers weigh workers' comp coverage for PTSD

You are on the front lines. When everyone else goes out, you go in. When everyone else goes down, you go up. When someone is in trouble, you are the first to arrive, willing to sacrifice whatever it takes to protect another life, even if it means placing your own body between someone else and mortal danger.

SSD benefits for adults disabled before the age of 22

When a child is diagnosed with a disability before the age of 22 and that child qualifies for Social Security Disability benefits, the payments are made to the parent. The Social Security Administration considers those payments as a child's benefits and the earnings are added to the parent's records.

Ohio Supreme Court rules in favor of injured worker

The success of a workers' compensation claim depends largely on the evaluation of the injury or disability made by doctors. As a result, it is common for the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation to either deny a workers' compensation claim completely or award a compensation amount that is much less than adequate for the injury suffered by a worker based on those medical evaluations. However, a recent ruling by the Supreme Court of Ohio may be of interest to many workers in and around Columbus.
