Henderson, North Carolina
Let a Henderson Disability Attorney Help you File for Disability BenefitsSocial security disability benefits are a right to any American worker who has paid his or her taxes into the social security system and later becomes disabled to the point that they can not work full-time for a minimum of twelve months. For those workers, SSD and SSI (supplemental security income) benefits are a welcome and often necessary replacement for people who have lost their income because they are not able to work.
To help decide if you might be able to qualify for disability benefits, begin by speaking with your doctor. If you have good communication with your doctor, they can tell you what the limitations of your condition are and give you an idea as to whether you may have a claim for benefits. If you choose to proceed with an SSD or SSI claim, you have multiple options to begin the social security disability benefits application process.
You can appear in person at the nearest Social Security Administration office. You can call the national toll-free hotline. You may apply via the Social Security Administration's website. Or you can contact a social security disability attorney. By speaking with an SSD/SSI lawyer, your chances of winning your claim go up significantly. A disability advocate who is familiar with SSD/SSI law can assist you with meeting important deadlines and moving past many of the pitfalls that the average person may not recognize.

Located just 40 minutes north of Raleigh and named in honor of former North Carolina Supreme Court Chief Justice Leonard Henderson, the city of Henderson was chartered in 1841. Yet even in small Vance County, there are still more than 10,000 people who struggle with disabilities on a daily basis . It is likely that a number of those people could be qualified to receive disability benefits.
There is no one stock answer on how disabled a person must be in order to receive social security disability benefits. One of the determining factors is an applicant's ability to do his or her past work. For instance, a 50-year old construction worker with a knee injury will likely have a hard time being on his feet all day, making it hard to go back to his old occupation. Yet the same could not be said of a 50-year old office worker who spends the majority of their day sitting behind a desk.
Hiring an experienced disability attorney to work for you will help you understand the regulations involved in applying for social security disability benefits or supplemental security income. Your disability lawyer can help prepare you and any possible witnesses to give effective testimony in court. Also, because a high number of claims are rejected at first, a social security disability lawyer can assist you with an appeal.
