How do the changes in Social Security regulations affect me?

Social Security disability benefits are provided to those people who are unable to work because they have a medical condition that will either last more than a year or might result in death. In these instances, disability benefits are provided to people across the country, including Ohio. Federal regulations govern the application procedure and it is very important to know the exact procedure for filing, to ensure mistakes do not hinder or disallow the process.

How do you know if you had toxic exposure?

Employees in Ohio, as across the country, have the right to a safe working environment. This means their employer has a duty to provide a reasonably safe workplace to their employees and workers. One of the duties that arise from this is to inform employees of the hazardous chemicals or toxins present in the workplace.

What if I need a special examination for my SSD benefits?

Ohio residents who are seeking disability benefits need to be aware of the possibility that the Social Security Administration will need more information before making a final decision to approve or deny the claim. This will come about when the state Disability Determination Services review the claim and decide that it does not meet the requirements to be approved without receiving more information. This does not automatically mean the claim will be denied. The claimant will be asked to go for a special examination or medical test. The SSA will pay for it as well as for certain expenses that come about due to the need to travel.

Don't fear filing a workers' comp claim

When Ohio residents send off their loved ones to their jobs in the morning, they expect that their family members will come back to them safe and sound. Unfortunately, this is not always what happens, as workers often get injured at work and this injury can be either short term or long term. The injury or illness ends up affecting not only the workplace accident victim, it also affects their families as not only is the breadwinner not able to work anymore, there are added medical expenses associated with medical care.

Understanding temporary total workers' compensation benefits

Ohio workers who suffer workplace injuries have the right to receive workers' compensation benefits. For those who are unable to work for a certain amount of time as they receive treatment and recover, it might be possible to get temporary total compensation. The eligibility for this type of workers' compensation benefits depends on certain factors. Those who qualify have been restricted from working because of an injury suffered at work, and they have been released to work on modified duty but the employer does not have work that meets what the worker is able to do.
