Qualifying For And Collecting Social Security Disability Benefits
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits are available to Ohioans with work histories who are unable to work for a year or longer because of one or more disabilities. Certain other categories of individuals, such as blind people, may qualify without significant work histories. When on-the-job injuries lead to partial or permanent disability, Social Security Disability (SSD) may offer much-needed additional income. Furthermore, anyone who is eligible for SSD benefits is also eligible for Medicare after a 24-month qualifying period.
One or more medical conditions may qualify someone for SSD benefits regardless of the cause of an injury, illness or chronic condition. Qualifying disabled workers may have cancer or other serious conditions unrelated to employment, lost wages or a lawsuit. SSDI benefits come through a federally managed program. SSD is funded by payroll and income taxes from working people. It is totally separate from, and not dependent on, a workers’ compensation case or personal injury claim. However, many people find it beneficial to work with one lawyer on two or more such legal issues after an injury on the job.
If you are unable to work for a year or longer because of one or more disabilities, contact the Law Office of Megan E. Burke, LLC. I am attorney Megan E. Burke, and I am ready to guide you through the application and appeals process as needed.
Get Comprehensive Support Through Disability Claim Denials And Appeals
Many people who apply for disability benefits are turned down initially. Let me help you through the long process. The Social Security Administration (SSA) denies a high percentage of first-time applications.
When an application is rejected, an applicant has a right to request reconsideration. Time is of the essence. Requests for reconsiderations and appeals must be made in a timely manner, otherwise, the person may lose the right to have their care reviewed.
