The Social Security Administration offers programs for people with disabilities, called the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) programs. While these two programs are different in many ways, both are administered by the Social Security Administration and only individuals who have a disability and who meet specific medical criteria may qualify for benefits under either program.

Disability Rights Ohio also oversees Ohio's federal representative payee review program, which was created August 1, 2018, after HR 4547 Strengthening Oversight and Beneficiary Protections was signed into law by the President.
