Welcome to Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities
Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities (OOD) is the State of Ohio agency that partners with Ohioans with disabilities to achieve quality employment and independence. We also make determinations on Social Security disability.
OOD does this through three areas:
OOD works with partners in business, education and non-profit organizations to facilitate customized employment plans for Ohioans with disabilities; help Ohio companies recruit and retain employees with disabilities; and is the sole agency administering the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) programs in Ohio.
OOD Helps Students with Disabilities Transition from School to Work
Students with disabilities who have a job at the time of exit from school are 5.1 times more likely to be engaged in post-secondary employment and education. For more information, visit Transition Students.
