How disability cases are decided

Ohio residents who have a frozen shoulder may be able to qualify for Social Security Disability benefits. However, this assumes that there is medical evidence to support the diagnosis. Furthermore, they must be able to show that they have not been able to work for the past 12 months or will not be able to over the next 12 months. An examiner will consider the impact that the injury has on an applicant's ability to obtain gainful employment.

Thousands of SSD claimants could lose benefits

The Trump Administration has proposed a new set of rules regarding continuing disability reviews for people receiving Social Security Disability benefits. The proposed changes have the potential to cut tens of thousands of recipients from the program.

The key players in a Social Security Disability hearing

By the time a Social Security Disability claimant finally reaches the hearing, their imaginations have had plenty of time to run amuck. Often, they walk into a hearing expecting to see a room full of people like they see on TV. They expect to see a judge and a slew of onlookers to make a judgment. However, this could not be further from the truth of what an SSD hearing looks like.

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?

The basics about Social Security Disability benefits

Each year thousands of people in America apply to be approved to receive Social Security Disability benefits. But, as a recent article noted, the majority of those applications are denied. However, that should not dissuade workers in Ohio who believe they have lost the ability to work due to a physical or mental disability. With the right information and the right approach, an Ohio resident's application for SSD benefits may indeed be approved.

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.

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.

Don't let the SSD claim process overwhelm you

For many elderly and disabled people in Columbus and the rest of the country, Social Security disability benefits are a critical source of income. However, when it comes to claiming SSD benefits, it is common for many applicants to be overwhelmed. Matters can become more difficult if a claim is filed only to be rejected by the SSA.
