Do you need help with an Ohio Social Security Disability claim?

Being disabled is difficult enough. Between the pain and inability to earn your own living, frustration can become a big factor in feeling like you'll never get to a better place. In times like these, it is important to remember that other people can help.

Annual COLA of Social Security Disability to be under 2 percent

Ohio residents should be aware that every year, the federal government changes the amount of benefits it pays out through the Social Security System to retirees and those who qualify for Social Security Disability. This change, called a "Cost of Living Adjustment" (COLA), is meant to keep the purchasing power of the benefits paid roughly the same year to year. This adjustment began in the mid-1970s due to high inflation rates that were beginning to impoverish many people receiving benefits.

SSDI's trust fund is running on fumes

Beneficiaries of the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program here in Ohio are probably concerned by the recent news from Washington. Congressional testimony reiterated the fact that without a change in the funding formula for the SSDI program, the trust fund that contributes part of the benefit payment will become insolvent next year.
