How can my inability to walk affect getting SSD benefits?

For Ohio residents who suffer a work-related injury or have a condition that prevents them from being able to work, there are certain requirements they must meet when they seek Social Security disability benefits. For people who have a physical problem that hinders their ability to walk, that is a crucial factor that the Social Security Administration and its Disability Determination Services will consider. One factor that is key is the ability to walk - or ambulate - effectively.

Surgery and opioids restricted for worker back injury in Ohio

It is important for workers in Ohio to keep an eye on various regulations used by the state when it comes to workers' compensation. For example, when there is an ongoing concern about how certain treatments are affecting workers, then there is a chance that rules will be put in place to regulate those treatments. One that is bound to be of interest to workers who suffer a back injury is the guideline from the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation restricting surgery and painkillers until it is the final resort.

What does 'remain at work' mean under workers' compensation?

Workers' compensation in Ohio can address a variety of different situations from workers who are completely unable to work for the foreseeable future, if not permanently, and workers who have minor injuries that leave them unable to work for a short period of time. For workers who have injuries that meet certain criteria, there is an alternative known as "remain at work" that might be useful. Knowing the details of remain at work is important for those who are considering it.

What is extreme limitation with neurological issues for SSD?

For Ohio residents who have a neurological disorder, knowing the requirements to get Social Security disability can be confusing. However, certain terms are important when seeking SSD benefits. One is "extreme limitation." Knowing what is meant by extreme limitation in the context of federal regulations when applying for disability is an important step toward being approved. Those who have an extreme limitation will often be unable to perform most, if not all, jobs. This is a vital factor in receiving SSD benefits.
