For those of us that have to work to provide for yourself or family, it can be utterly devastating when you are physically, mentally or emotionally unable to work. A sudden onset of a disability or the worsening of an already existing disability can make it difficult or even impossible to maintain a job. Thus, these individuals should understand what options they have when it comes to obtaining financial assistance for their disability that prevents them from working.
The Social Security Administration designed the Social Security disability program as a mechanism to help disabled individuals meet their basic living needs. While this is a very valuable and beneficial program, it does have its downsides. The application process can seem overwhelming, especially if an applicant is denied and is waiting for an appeal. However, this should not deter those in Ohio from seeking these benefits.
