Winston-Salem Social Security Disability Lawyer

The Social Security Administration (SSA) has two programs for providing benefits for those who are unable to work: Social Security Disability Insurance benefits (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI).  As a general rule, you should sign up for both programs.

Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits (SSDI) are benefits for people who have earned enough work credits by working and paying Medicare and Social Security taxes. The general rule to determine eligibility for SSDI benefits is whether you worked five out of the last ten years, earning a minimum amount as set forth by the Social Security Administration.  You should be eligible if the answer is “yes.”

You can also check your eligibility by looking at your annual Social Security earnings statement, sent to you by the Social Security Administration.  Your prior earnings will determine the benefit amount.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are benefits intended for people with less work history, children, or non-payment into the system. This is a needs-based program.  Benefits are affected by the financial assets, household income, or other benefits/income received. It should be noted that there are limits to household income/assets.  Exceeding the limits could potentially cause a medically disabled person to be unable to qualify for benefits.

Jason L Wilson Attorney at Law represents clients in their appeals process to receive Social Security Disability Benefits all throughout Winston-Salem and Forsyth County, and assists them in going over the options best suited for their individual situations.

Are You Eligible For Social Security Disability Benefits?

You must meet certain qualifications to determine if you are considered disabled or not. If you do not fit into any of the categories below, they will immediately deny your claim.

Answer the questions below to see if you will initially qualify:

  • Are You Working?

The application will not be approved if the individual makes more than a designated amount each month.

  • Is Your Condition Severe?

To be considered ‘disabled,’ your medical condition must severely limit you from carrying out basic activities and have lasted or expected to last for at least a year or unfortunately result in death.

  • Can You Perform The Work You Were Doing Before?

The disability must prevent you from continuing the kind of work you were doing before you became disabled. Your claim will be reviewed and then a decision will be made whether you are capable of performing your most recent job or not.

  • Are You Capable Of Performing Any Other Type Of Work?

You will be evaluated to see if you would be able to do other types of work in a different field to earn an income. If they deem you able to them you would not be considered “disabled”.
