Working on behalf of SSDI claimants in Ohio

Workers in Ohio - and throughout the United States - pay a part of their wages into a federal fund that is designed to protect you if you are injured or become ill and can no longer work. The taxes that fund the Social Security Disability Insurance program are taken out of your wages as part of your FICA withholding, just like Medicare and Social Security retirement taxes. Once you have earned sufficient work credits, you may qualify for SSD benefits if you become ill or injured.
