The inability to work can be a scary thought. No one expects to suddenly be unable to work because of an injury or illness. However, workers in Ohio and elsewhere can be faced with this issue. When a worker cannot maintain employment because of an injury or illness, it can be an emotional and overwhelming experience. It can cause financial problems, making it difficult to meet basic living needs. This is where Social Security Disability benefits can be of much value.
Although the Social Security Administration designed the SSD program to help those living with disabilities, it is not always a simple and quick process. In fact, many applications are initially denied. While this does not mean they will not receive these benefits after appealing the decision, it does mean that applicants are faced with additional steps and a longer timeline to obtain these necessary funds.
At our law firm, we understand that applying for SSD benefits can be frustrating and confusing. It is already difficult living with a disability that prevents a person from working, and now an applicant might be faced with the complications associated with the application process. We do our best to help our clients not only understand the process, but also their options throughout the process as well. We take the time to uncover all necessary documents, ensuring an application is complete or an appeal is well prepared.

While it can be challenging to navigate life after suffering a temporary or permanent disability, there are resources available to those living with a disability. Additionally, those applying for these benefits should understand the ability to appeal if an application is initially denied.
