What are some of the most common questions about SSD benefits?

Most people in Ohio are used to going to work everyday to earn income to support themselves and their families. So, when an injury or illness prevents them from doing so, the impact on the family's finances can be devastating. Fortunately, the Social Security Disability system is in place to help Ohio residents who are unable to continue to work and earn an income. But, unfortunately, the process of getting approved to receive SSD benefits can be somewhat complex.

What do you need to know about SSD benefits payments?

When people in Ohio apply for Social Security Disability benefits, they usually know that the process to get approved can be difficult and time consuming. However, they also know that they have paid into the SSD benefits system their entire working career and, if those benefits are needed due to some injury or illness, they are entitled to receive those benefits. But, what happens when an application for SSD benefits is actually approved? What do our readers need to know about Social Security Disability benefits payments?

What damages are available in a wrongful death claim?

Our readers may have seen a previous post here that discussed the basic elements of a wrongful death claim. Proving damages is one of the essential elements of such a claim. But, what damages are available when Ohio residents are successful in pursuing a wrongful death claim?

SSD benefits available for those with mental health conditions

Our readers in Ohio who are familiar with previous posts here know that Social Security Disability benefits are available for those with physical and mental health conditions alike. However, mental conditions are sometimes harder to diagnose and treat than physical conditions are, as there is sometimes no observable "problem" to "solve" with a person who suffers from a mental health condition.

Disability hearings: Do you know what to expect for yours?

When you can't work, it can cause financial suffering for your whole family. You need an income to pay for medical needs, groceries, rent and other daily needs. When you aren't able to maintain gainful income, you know how important it is to secure disability benefits through the Social Security Administration. You may also know how disappointing it is to learn that your claim came back denied.

It's time to start thinking about work safety and holidays

It's only the beginning of the fall season, but evidence of the fast-approaching holiday season are everywhere. In some Ohio retail stores, Christmas decorations are already out even though Halloween is still a few weeks away. Like it or not, the busyness of the end of the year will be here soon, which means it's time to start thinking about workplace safety during the holidays.

The right approach to obtaining workers' compensation benefits

Workplace accidents that lead to injuries are, unfortunately, quite common. There are, of course, certain areas of work in which it is more common for workplace accidents to occur, such as in the construction and industrial areas, but the fact is that workplace injuries can occur in many areas of employment. Workers can fall, have something fall on them, be injured by machinery, or even suffer injuries due to repetitive motions, among many other scenarios. When workers in Ohio suffer injuries and need to miss work as a result, they may be eligible to receive workers' compensation benefits.
