How Our Social Security
North Carolina Lawyers Can
Help You Apply
If you are applying for disability benefits because you can no longer work, our Social Security North Carolina lawyer may be able to help you get the benefits you deserve. Applying for disability benefits is often a difficult process, but our North Carolina Social Security disability lawyer can help inform you of everything you need to know about applying and appeals. When it comes to filing for disability, you have many options. You can file at your local field office, over the phone, or through the Social Security Administration website.
To apply for Social Security disability in person, call the SSA at (800) 772-1213 and speak with a representative to schedule an appointment. She will give you directions and inform you of what you need to bring to apply. To apply by phone, call the same number and make an appointment for a phone interview. The interviewer will request that you send in an application. To apply through the SSA website, visit the application page and begin your application. If you are unable to complete an application in one sitting, simply save it for later.
You need to complete both a disability benefits application and an adult disability report to begin the disability application process. You must also sign a release form and provide copies of all medical records. Also include your birth certificate as proof of your identity.
You should be prepared to answer questions about your illness and injuries as well as your work history over the past 15 years. Also be prepared for questions about the medical professionals who have treated you over the years and the medical tests you have had related to your disability. Your education and training will also come into question as related to your disability. A North Carolina Social Security disability attorney may be able to help you prepare for these questions.
