Being found eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits in Dayton, OH requires you to substantiate a claim for complete or long term disability with the Social Security Administration (SSA). The application process for Dayton disability benefits is complicated and can take 14 or more months to run it full course.
The process starts with your initial application, and about 72 percent of applicants are denied at this stage. If you’re among them, you’ll need to request a reconsideration. If you’re denied again, you’ll have to file an appeal and have your case heard by an administrative law judge, who will make the final determination on your eligibility for benefits.

The DDS reviews all medical documentation in your file to determine eligibility under SSA guidelines. To receive benefits, you must document ongoing and regular medical care for your disability. Paying for healthcare with limited finances can be hard, and here are a few Dayton disability resources for low cost and free medical services.
