Qualifying for SSD/SSI Benefits Archives

SSA employee charged with extortion

For Ohio residents who have limited incomes and other complicating disabilities, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) represents a valuable benefit they can receive from the federal government. The program provides financial assistance to those with low-incomes, are age 65, or who may have other disabilities or blindness.

Half of children with intellectual disabilities not vaccinated

As it become autumn in Ohio, with cooler days and nights, hinting at the winter that will follow, so to comes another season of influenza. Many people consider the flu an inconvenient disease that may cause them or their children to miss a day or two from work or school. The influenza virus, however, is not always a minor illness, and each flu season, thousand die from complications triggered by the virus.

Do you know when you will need SSDI?

We sometimes forget that we are all only an accident away from becoming disabled. In Ohio today, some worker will get up and go to work, only to be injured on the job or merely driving to work. Others will visit a doctor and will be diagnosed with a condition that makes it impossible for them to continue working. At that point, the debate over funding the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) will no longer be abstract. For you and your family, it will really matter.

Migraines: not your ordinary headache

If you live with migraine headaches, you know the discomfort can range from pressure and pain to agonizing reactions to sound, light and touch. The world hurts. If your migraines strike occasionally, they can be debilitating, but you probably can continue working and maintain the rest of the responsibilities of your life. Others are not so lucky. Their encounters with migraines may be frequent and overwhelming. These are chronic migraines and they may leave you disabled, unable to even hold a job.

West Virginia has the most disabled workers

Social Security Disability insurance (SSDI) provides help for those who cannot work in jobs with their existing skills and education. A news report lists the states with the most residents on disability. The report notes that there is a correlation with the increase in the number of applications for SSDI and the unemployment rates.

What if you don't have disability insurance?

Most people have various types of insurance. If you own a car, you are required by Ohio to carry a minimum level of insurance. Many working people have health insurance and if you own a home, you insure the structure and the contents. A large number of people have life insurances. But most people do not have disability insurance, as it can be very expensive and most people never expect to become disabled.What can you do if you have become disabled and no longer can work? Well, the Social Security Administration (SSA) has a program that can help, known as Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) that can help provide some income for the disabled.
