Social Security Disability Benefit Laws are Complicated

There are many North Carolina residents who are unable to work due to physical impairments and mental illness. Unfortunately, many times, when these individuals apply for Social Security Disability Benefits, their benefits are denied.

An experienced Social Security Disability lawyer can help you:

–          File your claim
–          Work with the Social Security                              Administration office near you
–          Handle all of the paperwork and hearings
–          Help you receive the social security                    disability benefits you deserve

The purpose of Social Security Disability Benefits is to provide financial support to those individuals who can no longer work due to severe disability, be it physical or mental disabilities. Social Security Disability Benefits are paid only to people who have long-term impairments, which limit the person’s ability to work.

Nearly 11 million disabled workers and their family members receive Social Security Disability Benefits in the United States. This represents a 7.6 million person increase over the past ten years.

Your disability benefits claim will most likely be processed through a local Social Security Administration field office and most likely will be rejected, as most claims are initially. If your claim is rejected you can ask the state agency to reconsider. If your claim is again denied, you can appeal to an Administrative Law Judge who is employed by the Social Security Disability Benefits office.

The laws surrounding Social Security Disability Benefits are extremely complicated. It makes sense to seek the advice of an experienced social security disability lawyer in order to expedite the filing process.
