Social Security in trouble due to growing population

Social security disability is supposed to be there to help those who have been hurt or fall ill at work in Ohio and other states. The benefits typically cover medical needs and time off, so these people don't have to struggle to make ends meet. A report from July 16 suggests that baby boomers and the unemployed are depleting the disability funds. There is concern that if this continues, the reduction in funds may make it hard for people to get disability when they need it.

Ohio senator speaks out on Social Security benefits

For disabled Ohio readers, the political back and forth between Republicans and Democrats over Social Security Disability benefits, might be disheartening. For those who are disabled, all they want to do is take care of themselves and their family, and there is often no other way without this program. Attorneys who represent the disabled understand this and are their best advocates.

Woman's legal and deserved Social Security denied

How would you feel if you found out that you couldn't get Social Security Benefits because someone has claimed that you're already receiving workers' compensation in Ohio? The two shouldn't be exclusive, but in this woman's case, she was denied for her Social Security Disability benefits because the office believed she was getting reparations from workers' comp. According to the April 2 report, the woman visited the Social Security Administration office to ask why her Social Security Benefits weren't arriving on the fourth Wednesday of the month as usual.

Is SSDI a victim of its own success?

Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) is a program that provides benefits for workers who have developed a disease or suffered an injury that has left them unable to work. The program has a fairly rigorous application process, with over 70 percent of applicants being denied benefits. Yet the program is being heavily attacked due to growth in the number of recipients of SSDI benefits.

SSDI is not the only benefits program that carries long-term costs

When we talk about long-term costs of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), we often think about 10-, 20- or maybe 50-year time frames. Sometimes, as when chief actuary for the Social Security Administration, discussed the state of the SSDI program in the year 2085, it is hard to really come to grips with a potential event 72 years in the future.

The complexities of disability and retirement

When an injury leaves a person in need of recovery, there is the possibility that she or he will not be able to return to work. Millions of people throughout the U.S. deal with this situation; some have been injured at home and others while on the job. There is also the possibility of being diagnosed with certain medical conditions that can leave a person incapable of working as well. For these individuals - some of whom live in Ohio - the only answer may be to seek out Social Security Disability benefits.

Your condition could make it harder to receive SSD benefits

Injured workers in Ohio often find themselves struggling to acquire disability benefits. The Social Security Administration receives thousands of applications for Social Security Disability from people who have sustained injuries or have conditions that have left them unable to work. Many diseases and conditions are recognized by the SSA as worthy of disability benefits and one of the most recently added ones is fibromyalgia.

Why has SSDI grown so much?

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is an important program for many residents in Ohio, but unfortunately, the program is approaching a crisis over funding and cost control. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) calculates the system could run out of money by 2016. Critics have pointed to the recent growth in the number of recipients of SSDI benefits.

Judges make a difference in whether you get disability benefits

When people apply for Social Security Disability benefits, it is because they need financial support. And Social Security is a federally run program, we expect that there will be consistent support given to people throughout the country. In reality, that is not always what happens.
