Reidsville, North Carolina
Let a Reidsville Disability Attorney Help you File for Disability BenefitsDid you know that Social Security Administration benefits were born from a federal program started by Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1945? After the Great Depression and World War II, the government realized that savings protections were needed for Americans who were no longer able to work yet struggling with income. If you are unable to work, those same disability benefits could be available to you. To qualify, you must have been out of work for 12 months or longer and be considered disabled according to the government's satisfaction.
The process for applying begins with filing a claim either with your local Social Security Administration office, over the phone or online. Another way to begin the SSD/SSI application process is by calling a social security disability benefits lawyer. Because they are trained in disability law, your disability advocate can help you meet the specified deadlines along the way. In addition, a trained SSD/SSI attorney will be able to ask your doctor the correct questions and write the letters that can help sway a judge to help win your claim.

Reidsville began as a stop along a stage line that ran from Salisbury, North Carolina to Danville, Virginia. The town started as a single family home and an Inn own and run by the family of Reuben Reid. Eventually, the tobacco industry took root in Reidsville with the American Tobacco Company being the driving force in the town's economy until the mid-1990s. Unfortunately today, there are more than 20,000 people with disabilities in the communities of Rockingham County . Many of them could be eligible for social security disability benefits.
Keep in mind that a majority of disability benefits claims are initially denied. However, your SSD/SSI lawyer can help you file an appeal, also known as Reconsideration. If the claim is denied again, you can continue the appeals process that may eventually take you before a Social Security judge. For the levels below seeing a judge, it is always better to consider appealing rather than starting the process over. Starting over could cause you to lose some back benefits.
If your disability benefits case was denied by a judge, talk to your SSD/SSI lawyer to discuss your options. In some instances, it may be wise to appeal the denied benefits claim while also filing a new claim in order to receive benefits that you may miss while waiting for a hearing. Each case is different, but a trained social security disability attorney can tell you which options are right for you.
Be aware that there are circumstances under which you can lose your disability benefits. The Social Security Administration may occasionally request updated copies of your medical records. If they determine you are able to return to work, you may have your benefits withdrawn. If you disagree with the decision, you do have the option to appeal.
