Suffering from a permanent disability in east central Ohio can be all consuming. Between lost wages, medical expenses, and emotional turmoil, individuals suffering from disabilities may feel like they are completely alone in their hardships. The Social Security Disability attorneys at Barkan Meizlish DeRose Cox, LLP, are here to let these individuals know that this is not the case. Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are federally funded programs available to disabled individuals who are unable to work. The programs provide benefits, such as monthly income and medical insurance, to qualifying applicants who cannot work due to a physical or mental disability.
The SSDI and SSI attorneys at Barkan Meizlish DeRose Cox, LLP are prepared to work with you every step of your Social Security Disability Income or Supplemental Security Income application. The unfortunate truth is that the Social Security Administration denies many of the applications that come their way. Getting your application approved may take multiple tries. Our Social Security Disability attorneys will help you through the appeals process and if it comes to it, help you take your claim to court.
Social Security Disability attorneys at Barkan Meizlish DeRose Cox, LLP, have been working hard for over 60 years. Our practice in SSDI/SSI is one of the first in the country to prioritize the often forgotten about and vulnerable people in society trying to secure their rightly owed benefits.
Regardless if you were born with a disability, or encountered your disability later in life, you may be able to apply for Social Security Disability benefits.
There are certain exceptions to these guidelines. SSDI attorneys with Barkan Meizlish DeRose Cox, LLP, will make sure that you are a qualifying applicant and work with you to submit the proper documentation. There are no specifications on the type of disability that makes a person a good candidate to apply for SSDI, besides that the disability must impair the applicant’s ability to work within the United States economy. Injuries or illnesses that damage a person’s ability to work for less than a year, especially if they occur in the workplace, are handled better through workers’ compensation claims in the state of Ohio.
Once you and your attorney begin working on your Social Security Disability benefits application, you will be expected to collect medical records and other crucial information regarding your disability. There is also a chance that throughout your application process, you may be expected to participate in mental and physical assessments conducted by medical providers chosen by the Social Security program. Your Social Security Disability attorney will help you through these steps.
Your attorney will also help determine if you qualify for Supplemental Security Income throughout your Social Security Disability Income application. This program is needs-based, and like SSDI, an applicant must be unable to work for at least a year due to their disability or their disability is likely to cause death.
Fortunately, it is usually possible to apply for SSDI and SSI at the same time. When applying for SSI, applicants are required to present documentation of all their assets. This includes vehicles, property, and things of that sort. Your partnership with a SSDI/SSI attorney will help you gather these documents and present them properly to the Social Security Administration.
You are not alone in your SSDI/SSI application process. The attorneys at Barkan Meizlish DeRose Cox, LLP, understand that this process can be tiresome and complicated. Our SSDI/SSI attorneys are passionate and educated about what it takes to get their clients their well-deserved benefits. Missing paperwork or items often lead to application denials.

“Bob DeRose was a huge help in getting my complaint settled. They were responsive and a huge help with all my questions. Would recommend them to anyone who needs help!”
My experience with this Law firm was phenomenal. I found my way into their offices after an unexpected workplace injury. Initially I was clueless about their performance.
The fact that I was not merely looking out for a supplement for my financial budget, I was simply there to explore whatever compensation was due me since the injury legitimately occcured “during and in the course of my employment”.
After an initial visit to the offices where the necessary documentation were initiated, the rest were simply a phone call for updates. Sometimes it was even needless.
They frankly discussed the pathway as well as the unpredictability of the timing for the process.This was necessary. I took that in good faith. The fact that there was no upfront payment was also a good thing.
Without monitoring my calendar, I waited patiently for the various
phases of the process to unfold.
Finally the claim was settled with so much transparency. The unpredictable journey ended with a check delivered to my mailbox.
In fact communications from this Law office is always expedient. The Front Desk Associate was very helpful and polite at all times. My attorney’s paralegal was always available to play her part whenever necessary.“
“They are top-notch attorneys who are experts in their fields. They do great work and are easy to work with. They care about their clients and always try to do the best job possible for them.”
“I had an amazing experience working with Sandy and Robin on my case. Robin was just a short email or call away from all of my questions. The communication I had with Sandy was just as great. Both Sandy and Robin made sure I knew exactly what was going on with my case at all times. I will be recommending them to others. If I ever need help legal matters in the future, I know I can get the help from Sandy Meizlish.”
