Toledo SSDI Benefits Attorney
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is a vital U.S. government program that provides financial support primarily for people who have worked and paid into the system prior to suffering severe, work-ending illnesses or injuries. Under some circumstances, widows, widowers and children are also eligible for SSDI benefits.
Are You Considering Applying For Disability Benefits? Was Your Claim Denied?
The fundamental requirements for a successful SSDI claim include a person having worked and paid into the system sufficiently prior to becoming permanently and totally disabled. Important things to know include:
- People qualify for disability due to a vast range of severe impairments — both physical and mental — that can be shown through objective evidence and testimony to render them unable to work.
- The majority of applications for SSDI benefits (and SSI disability benefits, under a program available to disabled and financially disadvantaged people without work histories) are initially denied.
- If you have received a claim denial, it does not mean you cannot qualify with persistence and the right legal counsel. However, getting sound legal advice within 60 days is critical when this happens.

Serving Northwest Ohio, Including Bowling Green: A Social Security Disability Appeal Lawyer Who Will Prioritize Your Case
Some Ohio firms and national companies that advertise SSDI representation offer minimal direct contact with an attorney. Many will help you only after a claim denial. In some cases, the client works only with a clerk or assistant until minutes before his or her reconsideration hearing.
In Ms. Jones’ view, your case is far too important to approach that way. We thrive on personal contact with the people we represent and will truly make your case our mission. We offer a free consultation and pursue only cases in which we believe we can prevail. If you succeed in obtaining benefits, our fee will be limited to a percentage of your back-due award.
