Experienced legal representatives advocate for clients in Social Security filings
SSDI benefits differ from Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and other programs that were created to assist only the poorest individuals. Anyone can collect SSDI benefits if they meet other qualifications, but about two-thirds of the people who apply for SSDI benefits receive an initial denial. Preliminarily, you must demonstrate the following to be eligible for SSDI:
- You must have accumulated enough work credits, which generally means you’ve worked and had Social Security deducted from your paycheck for a minimum of five of the last ten years.
- You must have a qualifying condition that leaves you unable to work for at least 12 months or will likely result in your death.
Proving to the Social Security Administration (SSA) that you meet these two requirements is crucial to the outcome of your claim. Our dedicated SSDI representatives can represent your interests from day one. We will meticulously collect and organize the evidence required to support your claim.
Dedicated support when dealing with SSDI benefit appeals
If your application for SSDI benefits has been denied, you might feel as if the SSA is treating you unfairly. While a common experience, it’s tough to deal with when you are already facing physical, emotional, and financial challenges. SSDI appeals happen in multiple phases, and you must follow strict deadlines or risk losing access to benefits. The best way to fight for your benefits is to have an experienced North Carolina disability attorney on your side that will make sure the SSA gives you and your claim the attention it deserves.
We have been handling these types of cases for more than 35 years. We work with you one-on-one and only collect a reasonable fee once you’ve been approved for benefits.
