Toledo Social Security Disability Resources

Being eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits in Toledo, OH, requires substantiating a claim for complete disability with the Social Security Administration (SSA). Under the SSA’s guidelines, you must have been completely incapable of working for a year or more due to a long-term or permanently disabling condition before applying for Toledo disability benefits.

The application process for Toledo disability benefits is complex and can take 16 or more months to run its course. The process starts with your initial application, and about 55% of applicants are denied at this stage. If you’re among those denied, you’ll have to request a second review of your claim. If you’re denied again, you’ll need to file an appeal and have your case heard by an administrative law judge.

There are several ways to apply for Toledo disability benefits. You can phone the SSA, at (800)772-1213, schedule an appointment with your local Ohio SSA office, or complete your application online with the SSA’s website, here. For assistance finding your local SSA office, call the number above or visit the SSA Office Locator webpage, here.

The local Toledo SSA office to which you turn in your application will review your file for completeness and then send it to the Disability Determination Services (DDS) office.
