Social Security Disability
In order to qualify for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, an individual must have worked for a sufficient period of time to qualify for compensation. In order to receive the benefits, you must be unable to engage in any gainful employment that is available in the area you reside for a period of at least twelve months, or it is anticipated that you will not be able to engage in any gainful employment, based on the opinion of a health care provider.
At The Moore Law Office, PLLC in Asheville, North Carolina, we understand the process that must be followed in order to receive Social Security Disability benefits. If you have questions or have been denied SSD, contact us today. We will explain your options and represent you in a Social Security Appeal.
An application must first be filed with the local Social Security office. You must establish that the disabling condition exists and completely file all necessary paperwork. If you have been denied, you may file a request for reconsideration. If denied for a second time, you have the right to request a hearing with an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). At that point, it is important to be represented by an experienced, knowledgeable lawyer.
We will make sure to get copies of your medical records and all other necessary documentation to the Social Security organization to support your claim. The ALJ has the authority to grant your Social Security Disability benefits in the appeals process. Once you have been awarded benefits, we will follow up to ensure you receive the benefits to which you are entitled.
