    Did you know that Social Security Disability Assistance is available to people with mental health disorders as well as those with physical disabilities?

      “It was a lot of information that I had to share and I felt comfortable and at ease sharing personal things with you. You all were very on top of things, keeping me informed of what was going… Everything was all done in the time you said it would be….if I ever have the occasion to recommend an attorney, I will recommend you.”

      Meet Jon Ressler

      Attorney and Founder

      Jon H. Ressler has worked to help disabled people qualify for Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income benefits since 1997, starting at the Wooster-Wayne Legal Aid Society. He joined Roose & Ressler in 2000 and became a principal in 2003. He opened the Wooster (2003) and Mansfield (2010) offices to better serve disabled people in those areas.

      He has lectured on Social Security disability law at conferences of the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives (NOSSCR) and other Continuing Legal Education seminars for lawyers. He is a member of the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives, the Ohio State Bar Association, and the bar associations of Wayne, Richland, and Lorain Counties. Mr. Ressler earned his B.A. degree at the University of Akron and his J.D. degree at Case Western Reserve University.

      As a medical provider, you see patients with chronic medical problems that significantly impair their ability to work. You know about your patients’ conditions, their diagnoses, test results, and symptoms. And you have some understanding about how their conditions limit their functional abilities. But it often may be difficult to know whether your patient may qualify for Social Security disability benefits. Eligibility is determined by many factors, including non-medical questions relating to the patient’s (and their family’s) finances, whether their work has earned them an insured status under the disability insurance benefit program, age, education, and vocational issues.
      This is all in addition to the critical medical issues: whether their conditions result in symptoms and limitations that meet Social Security’s standard of disability and whether there is enough objective documentation to prove it. Roose & Ressler has been helping patients like yours with disability claims for decades. Keep us in mind if you just need an answer to a Social Security disability question or have a patient who might benefit from our services.
