Social Security Disability in Toledo, OH

Qualifications to receive SSI and SSDI benefits in Toledo

In This Section:

What if you are disabled and unable to work? Many individuals do not realize that the Federal Government, through Social Security Disability Insurance or SSDI, provides disability benefits to workers who have a severe mental or physical health condition that is expected to last for at least 12 continuous months and does not allow them to work.

The SSA administers SSDI in Toledo and pays monthly wage replacement payments to qualifying Toledo workers. Not all Toledo workers will qualify for SSDI in Toledo. Toledo SSDI is only available to workers who have paid employment taxes and have earned 20-40 work credits over the course of their employment working jobs "covered" by Social Security.

Most full-time Toledo workers can earn 4 work credits per year. The amount of credits needed varies based on the employee's age at the time of their disability.

Additional SSDI auxiliary benefits may be paid to qualifying widows, widowers, and dependant children of Toledo SSDI recipients, who are either currently receiving SSDI benefits or were receiving benefits at the time of their death.

Toledo SSDI is not paid to all disabled workers. If a worker has not paid taxes or has not worked, they will be denied SSDI benefits, regardless of their disability.

Are there other options for non-insured workers? The Federal Government does offer cash assistance through Supplemental Security Income (SSI) to Toledo residents who are disabled, blind or aged (65 years and older) and who are unable to work for at least 12 continuous months. SSI claimants also must have very limited income and resources. Toledo SSI recipients may also qualify for Medicaid, in most states, at the time of approval.
