How We Can Help You Obtain Benefits
From the moment that we accept a new case, we take on the task of completing the actions necessary for getting approval of the claim. This process begins with intake and screening of the claim by a partner from our team, during which we can meet with you face to face, something that is possible because we are located here in North Carolina. We listen to your story and evaluate the situation to determine whether you are eligible for benefits through Social Security Disability and other programs, such as Supplemental Security Income, Medicaid and Medicare, andVeterans Disability Benefits. Next, we help our client gather the necessary medical records and documentation from Social Security in order to get the evidence to prove the claim. This may include working with doctors who can provide a diagnosis and document the degree of your impairment. Our goal is to ensure that your claim is prepared in such a way as to maximize the likelihood that it will be approved with a minimum of delay and complication.
In the event that your claim is denied, we will not hesitate to take action to appeal the claim. The appeal process begins with requesting reconsideration of the application, which consists of having another staff member from Disability Determination Services review the claim. The next stage of appeal is to appear at a disability hearing before an administrative law judge. We provide vigorous advocacy and representation at hearings, where we fight for our client’s right to receive benefits.
When your claim finally is approved, we do not settle for the fact that you will now be receiving benefits; we also seek retroactive payment for the benefits you would have received if your claim had not been denied in the first place. Statistically, people who hire an attorney / representative for their Social Security Disability claims are awarded benefits far more often than unrepresented claimants.
You owe it to yourself to do everything you can to recover the benefits that you need to support your family. As we help you navigate this process, we will maintain regular contact with you so that you fully understand what is going on with your claim.
