About Us

Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities (OOD) is the State of Ohio agency that partners with Ohioans with disabilities to achieve quality employment and independence. We are also charged with making determinations on Social Security disability.

OOD does this through three areas:

Independence for Ohioans with physical or mental disabilities is the mission that unites all aspects of the Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities (OOD). OOD works with partners in business, education and non-profits to facilitate customized employment plans for Ohioans with disabilities.

OOD's trained and professional staff help Ohio companies recruit and retain employees with disabilities.

OOD is the sole agency administering the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and the  Supplemental Security Income (SSI) programs in Ohio.
