Raleigh Social Security Disability Lawyer

Dedicated to helping you receive benefits

Social Security Disability Insurance is intended for individuals who can no longer work because of a severe disability. With this government program, money is withdrawn from employees’ paychecks and allocated to a fund for people not working because of their disabilities. Social Security Disability Insurance is monitored by the Social Security Administration, which reviews each case to ensure that truly only deserving people receive this financial support.

Qualifying for Social Security Disability Insurance

To receive Social Security Disability Insurance, an applicant generally must have worked for a specified amount of time and have a qualifying disability. A disability refers to any condition, illness or injury that affects a person’s ability to work.

Based on this definition, below are some examples of accepted medical conditions that may be covered under SSDI:

  • Cancer
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Chronic heart disease
  • Mental disorders
  • HIV positive
  • Rheumatoid arthritis

At Lanier Law Group, P.A., our attorneys have helped hundreds of people successfully file SSD claims, as well as claims for Supplemental Security Insurance, or SSI. Our compassionate attorneys can help you through the SSDI appeals process, explain why you may have been denied the first time you applied, and assist widows/widowers seeking SSDI for their future well-being.

We have also helped clients throughout the state of North Carolina who were seeking total and permanent disability status, had questions about Medicare and Medicaid or had concerns about claiming SSDI over the age of 50. We've held our ground for clients seeking SSI for disabled children. We stood in their corner, and we'll stand in yours too.
