Social Security Disability Benefits for Physical Disability Archives

What family members can receive SSDI benefits in Ohio?

We have discussed previously in this space the different aspects of a disability claim for individuals who have an inability to work due to a physical impairment. Today, we will take a look at the other people who may also qualify for Social Security Disability benefits based on a disabled worker's record.

What are the two ways to get approved for Ohio SSDI?

If you live in Ohio and have a disability that prevents you from working, you may have questions about applying for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. For example, you may have heard that there are two methods by which you can be approved for benefits: either by satisfying the requirements of one of the conditions contained in the SSD "list of impairments" or by receiving a "medical vocational allowance."

Ohio SSD and "substantial and gainful activity"

Ohioans considering applying for Social Security Disability (SSD) often spend a lot of time considering how they are going to get their medical records organized to have the best chance to be approved for a claim involving physical disability. While this is certainly an important part of the process, there is another parameter that those applying for SSD may overlook.

Could doctors prevent brain damage with new drug?

Most people, after suffering a head injury, wonder if it could lead to brain damage. If it does, then that person is left with another looming question: will the damage temporarily disable me or will I be permanently disabled? Anyone would consider it an uneasy question to ask and even a more difficult one to answer.

Work injuries can lead to disability

If you have been injured at work, you may be confused as to the differences or similarities between Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) and workers' compensation benefits. While you may be eligible for benefits from both types of program as a result of your injury, there are very specific requirements for each. 

Bill could enable faster SSDI approval for terminally ill

Being a disabled worker in Ohio is not an easy situation. You find yourself unable to work and earn income. You apply for a benefit program, like Social Security disability insurance (SSDI), and you wait for the application process to run its course. You hope your application is accepted and your payments begin, but sometimes it may be months before you receive your first benefit payment.

Fibromyalgia patients may be eligible to receive SSDI benefits

Millions of people in the U.S. suffer from fibromyalgia, which is a painful condition that causes widespread pain, weakness and fatigue. Despite many patients suffering from the painful condition, many doctors did not believe that the pain actually existed. Now, a new study shows that fibromyalgia is real and it could help more individuals receive Social Security disability benefits.

VA clears nearly 3,000 from huge backlog of disability claims

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has struggled for years with a backlog of cases. Two recent wars, ongoing action by the military and aging veterans of the Vietnam war have made disabilities a common concern for many of our nation's servicemembers.
