Your eligibility to continue working while getting SSD

Receiving news that your injury will prevent you from returning to your job in Ohio can be disheartening. Even more frustrating is if recovering from your injury will require continuous medical treatment and therapy that could prevent you from working for the foreseeable future. At Cutter Hall Karlock LLC, we know that receiving financial help when you are unable to work is critical. 

The necessity of SSD depends on individual situations

For people who are used to maintaining a job that allows them to make a living and provide for their families, hearing that their recent injury in Ohio is going to prevent them from working for the foreseeable future can be completely disheartening. While some people may be able to heal enough from their injury to resume their employment after a temporary break, others may find that their future as they have always anticipated, looks completely different now. 

What determines your eligibility for social security disability?

When you have received an injury that is going to prevent you from being able to work in Ohio for the foreseeable future, it can be disheartening, to say the least. The financial strain you may feel as a result of a limited income could be difficult to adjust to at first, especially if you have a family to care for. Fortunately, there are resources designed to provide temporary support as you fight to recover and regain your strength. 

Depression and social security disability insurance

Like many Ohio residents, you may be living with a mental illness. After seeking treatment from medical professionals, your health might be back to normal. However, sometimes you may have an acute case that is treatment-resistant and not easily resolved. At Cutter Hall Karlock LLC, we understand the impact that severe depression can have on your financial situation and life. 

Applying for disability as a young adult

When people think about young adults in the workplace, they may envision healthy and physically-active staff members who are fully capable of performing their job duties on a daily basis. Unfortunately, this is not always the reality, and many young adults struggle with various physical and mental disabilities that can interfere with their ability to make a living. Worse, some may feel as if they are unable to apply for disability benefits because of the stigma surrounding these benefits, especially for those who are younger. It is important to set these feelings aside if you are struggling with a disability that prevents you from working.

Dealing with a denied disability claim

People file for Social Security Disability as a result of various physical and mental hardships which have disrupted their lives, whether they resulted from workplace accidents or were caused by some other factor. Unfortunately, these disabilities can leave people with a wide-ranging list of challenges, such as those which are financial in nature (losing the ability to pay rent or take care of bills) or emotional (experiencing unbearable anxiety or running into marital problems due to stressors). Many people apply for SSD with the hope that these benefits will turn their lives around. Unfortunately, a lot of applicants are denied, and it is critical to handle a denied claim properly.

Degenerative disc disease may qualify for SSD

For Ohio residents unable to work due to physical issues, Social Security disability benefits may help supplement funds needed for medical bills and daily expenses. However, there are several eligibility requirements that workers must meet before they qualify. One of the primary considerations is if the issue is on the list of medical conditions the Social Security Administration maintains and if the impairment affects the individual’s ability to continue performing the work completed in the past.

Investigation: SSD claims too quickly reviewed & denied

Putting together an application for Social Security Disability benefits is a lengthy, complex and sometimes painstaking process. It involves coordinating with physicians to procure medical records, filling out extensive forms and other tedious administrative tasks. But if you can no longer work due to a disability and are counting on benefits, you have little choice but to put in the time and effort.

Reviewing some other perks of disability benefits

For those who are facing financial hardships because of a physical or mental disability, Social Security Disability benefits can have a significant impact on their quality of life from a financial perspective. They may regain the ability to provide for their loved ones, pay their bills and buy food, for example. However, these are not the only reasons why Social Security Benefits can be so advantageous for those who are disabled. In this post, we will examine some of the other ways in which people in Columbus and across the state of Ohio benefit from Social Security Disability.

Eliminating the stigma of Social Security Disability

There are countless reasons why people push off applying for Social Security Disability, whether they are unsure if a disability or hardship they are struggling with is covered or they have too much stress and not enough free time to move forward with an application. Moreover, some people may decide not to move forward with an application because of the stigma that surrounds disability benefits. For example, they may be told by friends and family members that they do not need disability benefits or made to feel guilty for receiving such benefits.
