Experienced State Disability Lawyers, Here To Help You

All employees who are paid by the state of Ohio, a county, municipality or local government within the state are members of the Ohio Public Employees Retirement System (OPERS). If you are no longer able to continue working in your usual position of employment due to a medical condition, then you may be eligible for PERS Disability Benefits.

While similar to Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), these programs exist solely for individuals who are:

  • Employed by the State of Ohio or a county, city, or local government.
  • State of Ohio public school teachers and non-teaching employees of local school systems; and,
  • Some Ohio police and firefighters.

How Can An Agee Clymer State Disability Retirement Systems Attorney Help Me with My Disability Benefits?

Qualifying is not simple. You may need to partner with a lawyer who understands the OPERS/STRS/SERS/OP&F systems to file an application, appeal a denial of benefits, or to appeal a termination of benefits. Completing, filing, and following up on disability benefits paperwork can be difficult, especially for an individual or family dealing with a disability.
