Total and Permanent Disability
 

Experienced Raleigh Disability Attorneys Fight for Your Benefits

Representing clients throughout North Carolina since 1995

If you find yourself suddenly disabled because of an accident or illness, you may be worried about earning an income to support yourself and your family. Fortunately, the Social Security Disability Insurance program is available to individuals who suffer a total and permanent disability. Nevertheless, meeting the criteria to receive benefits under this government program is not easy.

As dedicated disability lawyers, we at Lanier Law Group, P.A. provide sound guidance to residents of Raleigh and throughout North Carolina seeking legal assistance on SSI matters. We have an in-depth understanding of the process and can help you from start to finish. For more information on what our legal team can do for you, visit one of our offices today.

SSI lawyers explain total and permanent disability

We have handled many complicated issues related to Social Security Disability in Durham and throughout the state including disability claims for people older than 50. As a result, we are aware of the reasons Social Security Disability may be denied. To qualify for benefits under SSI or Social Security Disability, you must prove you have an ongoing physical or mental disability not likely to improve within 12 months.

There’s often confusion regarding total and permanent disability. You do not need a permanent disability to receive benefits. Your disability must be total — meaning you are 100 percent disabled. The SSA defines this as being unable to engage in substantial gainful activity, and your condition may result in your death or is likely to last more than a year. If your application for Social Security Disability is denied for any reason, a lawyer can help you file an appeal.

You can still work

Contrary to popular belief, you can still work while collecting Social Security Disability. However, the work you perform cannot earn you more than $1,040 a month.
