Although the Social Security Administration (SSA) denies approximately 60% of the claimants who file initial applications, your odds of being approved increases if you have the assistance of a North Carolina Social Security disability attorney. In most cases, you will be able to determine a rough estimation of what you are eligible to receive with the assistance of an attorney, during your initial evaluation.
It is important to bear in mind that the benefits you receive are influenced by a number of factors, largely based on how much you earn. Just because the average payment is $1,064 per month does not necessarily mean that you will receive the same, even if you consider your earnings to have been relatively average.
If you are not eligible for Social Security disability insurance, you may be able to collect Supplemental Security Income, or SSI, another provision of the SSA. An important stipulation: If you earn more than $1,000 per month, you will not be eligible for SSDI or SSI benefits.
Have you been rejected from collecting SSDI benefits?
If you have filed for Social Security disability payment benefits and have been rejected, you still have 60 days to file an appeal, which at this stage is called "reconsideration." If you are denied, you have 60 days to appeal for a hearing in front of an administrative law judge. You are more likely to be approved if you have the assistance of a North Carolina Social Security disability attorney.
