The family of Columbus Social Security attorneys at Larrimer & Larrimer, LLC knows injured workers. We have proudly represented the workers of Ohio since our founder Richard N. Larrimer turned his focus to workers compensation in the late 1920s. In the years that have followed, we expanded our practice across the state and into the Ohio Social Security disability arena. We understand that in some cases, the benefits you receive from workers comp are not enough. If you have suffered a severe injury that has permanently affected your ability to work, you may be entitled to Social Security benefits.
Nearly 55 million Americans will receive Social Security benefits this year. While many of these beneficiaries are retirees, millions benefit from Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), the two of several Federal programs that assist people with disabilities.
The Social Security Administration (SSA) pays SSDI benefits to people who can no longer work because they have a medical condition expected to last at least one year or result in death.
In order to receive SSDI, you must prove that:
The SSA has very strict rules and definitions that determine whether an injury or illness constitutes a disability. They look carefully at the effect your disability has on your ability to maintain gainful full-time employment. The SSA has a strict list of impairments organized by body system and age that qualify for a finding of disability.
It is important to consult with a Ohio Social Security attorney who understands the complex nature of Social Security Disability.
The SSA pays SSI benefits to people with low income. To qualify you must:
SSI is a need-based program, so you must provide the SSA with very specific information about your income and resources. If the government decides you have too many assets, it may deny your claim. An attorney can help you determine whether you qualify and help you figure out the right path.
There are very specific rules regarding how to qualify for SSI and SSDI, which makes it important that you have a Columbus SSI disability lawyer to review your case. You may also qualify for Ohio’s Residential State Supplement if you live in an adult care facility.
