Cincinnati and Dayton, Ohio

What happens when you are injured or become ill and cannot work as you used to?  In addition to the retirement program, Social Security provides benefits for people who are unable to work for a living due to physical or other disabilities.

Frequently, hard working people who are unable to work see their claim for Social Security Disability benefits denied.  There is a sixty-day period to file an appeal when a claim for Social Security Disability is denied, so it is important to consult an attorney about your Social Security claim as soon as you receive the denial.

Definition of Disability

If you are no longer able to work for a living due to physical or mental impairment that will last at least one year, you may qualify for Social Security Disability benefits.  There are dozens of impairments, both mental and physical, that qualify for Social Security Disability benefits. The other requirements are to be older than 31 years old and have paid into Social Security for five of the previous ten years. If you are below this age, there are different requirements for disability benefits.
