Charlotte Social Security Disability Lawyers
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.
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.
