American LegalNet, Inc. www.FormsWorkflow.com Acceptable and Unacceptable Proofs of Permanent and Total Disability Physician’s Certificate: Acceptable. An application based on physical disability must include a certificate signed by a physician licensed to practice in Ohio. An application based on mental disability must include a certificate signed by a physician, which includes a psychiatrist or psychologist licensed to practice in Ohio. Note: A chiropractor is not a “physician” for purposes of the Homestead Law. Federal Agencies: Social Security Administration (SSA): An SSA (or SSI) form indicating that an applicant is “disabled” is acceptable. The SSA only gives disability benefits to those who are permanently and totally disabled. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA): Not acceptable, unless the individual is also determined to have “individual unemployability.” The VA certifies all members as “permanently and totally disabled,” whether or not they are employable. Railroad Retirement Board (RRB): The RRB has two types of disability pensions: (1) total and permanent disability and (2) occupational disability. Only the “permanent and total disability” pension is acceptable. State Agencies: Bureau of Workers Compensation: A determination of “permanent and total disability” is acceptable. Other determinations, such as “permanent and partial disability” “temporary and total disability,” and “temporary and partial disability” are not. State Retirement Systems: Not acceptable. The Public Employees Retirement System (PERS), the State Teachers Retirement System and the School Employees Retirement System (SERS), do not certify permanent and total disability. While the State Highway Patrol Retirement System (HPRS) and the Police and Firemen’s Disability and Pension Fund (PFDPF) do certify individuals to be “permanently and totally disabled” these determinations are job-specific and do not rule out the possibility of other substantially remunerative employment using a different set of skills.
