Social Security Disability (SSD)
Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits are protected under federal exemptions in a bankruptcy. This means these benefits cannot be involuntarily seized to pay creditors. When you work with our experienced attorneys, we will help explain the differences between federal and Ohio exemptions, and how your situation may be affected by certain exemptions.
Ohio exemptions are different from federal exemptions. We can help explain the differences and how certain benefits may be affected. In Ohio, the following types of benefits generally exempt:
- Unemployment benefits
- Vocational rehabilitation benefits
- Workers’ compensation benefits
