If you’re looking for information on a Social Security disability attorney in Warren, Ohio, Liner Legal can help you.
We work closely with the Warren County Social Security office, and we offer a broad range of disability services. We are well-versed in both Social Security Administration disability benefit programs: SSDI for regular disability benefits, and Supplemental Security Income (SSI), which for low income and elderly people.
Perhaps you have suffered a recent illness or injury and you’re not able to work. You may be entitled to these benefits. Most people who receive these benefits are disabled workers. After all, you should utilize these benefits if you qualify; they are there for you so that you and your family are provided for.
Who qualifies for these benefits, and how does the Social Security Office in Warren, Ohio determine eligibility? About 5 percent of Ohio residents qualify for benefits. For Warren’s population of 41,000, it means about 2,000 people likely qualify.

SSA will look at your lifetime work history and your eligibility for Social Security in general. Basically, you will be eligible for these benefits if you’ve paid a certain amount of Social Security tax over time. In general, you must have worked five years in the last 10 years to get coverage.
Next, SSA will look at whether you medically qualify for a disability, such as a terminal illness or a medical condition expected to last more than 12 months. Your medical condition must be severe enough to prevent you from working.
At Liner Legal, we can help you through the process. We can help you file for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits, sometimes referred to as Disability Insurance Benefits (DIB) or Title II Benefits. SSDI has no household income restrictions, so even if your spouse is still working and financially able to support you, you yourself are still entitled to DIB benefits.
If you are a military veteran, there are special VA benefits you can file for. We can also help you file for benefits for your dependent children, known as child’s disability benefits, and if you have an adult disabled child, there is a special benefit program for them as well called DAC or Disabled Adult Child benefits. If your disabled spouse is deceased, we can help you file for the Disabled Widow/Widower Benefits (DWB) program.
SSI is another benefit program that is not a Social Security disability program handled by the Social Security office in Warren, Ohio, Instead, general tax revenues pay for this program designed to help aged, blind and disabled people who have little or no income. SSI benefits are not based on prior work history, but there are income and resource limits. The same process is used to determine your medical eligibility. SSI benefits were created to afford minimal economic relief to disabled people who would not otherwise receive the necessary financial support they need.
