Understanding Your Right to Social Security Disability Benefits

If you become permanently disabled as a result of a car collision, work injury, or other mishap, you may qualify for Social Security disability benefits. Sometimes an injury claim will lead to a disability claim. In other instances, an unfortunate health development unrelated to an injury claim could lead to disability.

However you become disabled, our Charlotte Social Security disability attorneys can help you work to get your Social Security disability benefits approved. We proudly serve clients throughout North and South Carolina.

Contact our experienced attorneys and learn how Charles G. Monnett III & Associates can help; call (704) 859-2003 for a free consultation.

Qualifying For Social Security Disability Benefits

In order to qualify for Social Security disability benefits, you must meet the following criteria:

  • You must have a disability that lasts for at least one year or will result in death
  • Your disability prevents you from doing previous work
  • Your disability prevents you from adjusting to a different kind of work
  • You must have worked for a sufficient amount of time, based on your age, to qualify according to the Social Security Administration's guidelines

Applying For SSD Benefits

The most difficult part of qualifying for Social Security disability benefits is proving that your disability prevents you from doing any previous or new work.

The Social Security Administration (SSA) provides a disability benefits brochure that will give you a basic overview of the application and qualification process. If you have already started the application process, do not be discouraged if you are initially denied.

Appealing Denied Social Security Disability Applications

Social Security disability applications are often denied and must go through an appeals process. Avoid the frustration and stress of a denied SSD application by contacting an experienced Social Security disability attorney in Charlotte who can help.

Speak to an Experienced Lawyer

At Charles G. Monnett III & Associates, our team is experienced in handling injury and disability claims. Our Social Security Disability Insurance lawyers can help with the application process and work to prove that you are, in fact, disabled—even if your application was initially denied.
