Division of Disability Determination Benefits

The Ohio OOD Division of Disability Determination (DDD), in agreement with the Social Security Administration (SSA), determines medical eligibility for Ohioans who apply for Social Security disability benefits. Benefits include:

Disability, under the SSA, is based on an individual’s inability to work. SSA uses the same definition for both benefit types. Unlike workers' compensation or veteran’s benefits, SSA has no partial disability category. DDD is a federally regulated division of OOD. It receives 100 percent of its funding from SSA.
