What is the definition of "permanently and totally disabled"?

Section 4503.064 of the Revised Code defines "permanently and totally disabled" as "a person who has some impairment in body or mind that makes him unfit to work at any substantially remunerative employment where he is reasonably able to perform and which will, with reasonable probability, continue for an indefinite period of at least 12 months"

An appropriate certificate of disability form (PDF) must be completed and signed by a licensed physician or psychologist (or a copy of the Social Security Disability notice of award letter) and submitted with the Homestead Exemption application.
