Albemarle, North Carolina
Let a Albemarle Disability Attorney Help you File for Disability BenefitsLiving with a debilitating injury or illness is difficult enough. If that condition forces you to miss work and lose income it can be even more challenging. For many low income workers and their families, a disability can create a financial strain when the cost of medical bills are added to everyday household expenses. Much of that stress can be relieved by social security disability benefits. Filing a claim begins with an application process that most average people can complete on their own. However many are turning to the help of social security disability attorneys to assist with building an SSD or SSI case.
Your disability advocate has experience with social security disability law and in many cases will be familiar with the administrators or judges who will evaluate your claim for disability benefits. This knowledge can be vital to helping you put together the strongest benefits claim application possible. An SSD/SSI attorney will also aid you through every portion of the application process as well as any necessary appeals (most applicants initially have their claims rejected). Your lawyer will have the time, resources and know-how to put create a winning case on your behalf.

The modern city of Albemarle is located on land that was originally populated by small tribes whose artifacts date back almost 10,000 years. It gained its name from Albemarle County, the first established in North Carolina – similarly named after the English Duke of Albemarle. Located in the state's Uwharrie Lakes region and just west of Morrow Mountain State Park which draws tourists from all over the state. Unfortunately in surrounding Stanly County, there are nearly 12,000 disabled people . Many of them could be eligible to receive disability benefits from the Social Security Administration.
There is no easy answer to the question of how disabled you must to be to win an SSD/SSI benefits claim. Part of it is determined by your condition and how it would affect your job performance. Age is also a determining factor when considering a disability benefits claim. For workers who are age 50 and over who are nearing retirement, it is more likely that their disability claim will be granted. However, it is not impossible for younger workers to receive their SSD/SSI benefits. Talk to your disability benefits attorney about your situation and they can help your prepare your claim.
Be aware that use of or addiction to drugs or alcohol could complicate a SSD or SSI benefits claim. In the 1990s, the regulations regarding alcoholism or drug abuse were altered significantly. Your long term disability benefits advocate can help you with the details of those laws. However if you can prove that even without using drugs or alcohol, you would still be unable to work, you likely can still win a disability claim.
