Learn About Social Security Disability Qualifications

People who have a disability that prevents them from working or otherwise supporting themselves deserve support so that they can live. That is a basic idea that the law backs up, although in practice it can be a little more difficult. If you think you may need Social Security Disability benefits due to a disability to make ends meet, you need a lawyer who can guide you through this process with confidence.

Heck & Stiffler has over 50 years of combined experience helping people struggling across northern and north central Ohio get the monetary benefits they deserve. We grew up and live in the area, and we understand how hard life can be. We will be able to educate you on all your available options.

Who Is Entitled To Social Security Benefits?

There is often a question of who is or is not entitled to payments for a disability. The law is complex in many ways, but whether or not a person is eligible for benefits is relatively simple. The Social Security office looks at three basic questions for every person seeking these kinds of benefits based on their physical health and conditions:

  • Can you continue working?
  • Can you work in another field?
  • Have you been or are you unable to work for more than one year?

These questions, by and large, cover most people who need these benefits, although there are exceptions. You may have a disabled child, were dependent on a now-deceased spouse, were wounded in combat or have some vision impairment. If so, you may still be able to get support.

Our attorneys Jeff Heck and Jeff Stiffler can walk you through the entire process. Our firm is methodical in our approach to these cases, and we put our work into pursuing the results that work best for you. It all starts with providing you with basis of knowledge, and when you have that, your chances for success improve dramatically.
