What are the differences between SSDI and SSI?

Millions of Americans throughout the United States suffer from debilitating injuries, illnesses and mental conditions that keep them out of work. In an effort to provide some financial relief for those who are fighting with a disability, the Social Security Administration has multiple programs in place, Social Security Disability Insurance, commonly known as SSDI, and Supplement Security Income, or SSI, to help. For either program, applicants must prove that they have a disabling condition, and that the condition is expected to last at least a year or end in death.

How brain injuries affect the body

According to many scientists and medical professionals, the human brain could be considered the most complex system known to man. Its proper functioning is essential to human life. But, head injuries do occur, and a serious head injury could leave someone with catastrophic or even fatal injuries.

What is rheumatoid arthritis?

There are several types of autoimmune disorders that affect millions of Americans in the United States, including multiple sclerosis, lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. Such diseases make the immune system attack tissues in the human body, instead of fighting viruses, bacteria and other infections. This can have a dramatic effect on a person's ability to function in life, including the ability to keep a job.

What is schizophrenia?

Schizophrenia is a severe mental disorder that affects many people throughout the country, including people in and near the Cincinnati, Ohio, area. It generally causes disruption in how a normally functioning person behaves, acts, feels and thinks. Symptoms typically start to manifest between the ages of 16 and 30, although it could affect children as well.

How independent medical examinations work

If you have filed a workers' compensation claim in Ohio, you might receive a notice asking you to attend an independent medical examination. Most often, insurance companies ask for an IME when they have issues regarding your condition, proposed treatment or disability rating. Sometimes, an IME can happen on the order of the judge or hearing officer.
