Each month, thousands of North Carolinians become disabled from working and apply for Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security income (SSI) benefits. Unfortunately, many of those applying for benefits do so without the assistance of an attorney to help them avoid mistakes.
The Social Security Disability Insurance program is funded by working people like you who pay Social Security taxes with every paycheck. This program can provide you with financial support if you become unable to earn an income prior to retirement age. The application and appeal process can be quite lengthy and frustrating. An attorney experienced in handling disability claims can make the process easier and less stressful, and will represent you before an Administrative Law Judge if a hearing is necessary.
If you have become disabled and would like to apply for Social Security Disability or would like help appealing your claim which has already been denied, call our office at 1-800-849-5291 for a free consultation.
